Dealing with Feeling: sad
Dealing with Feelings is a 6 book series that helps children understand their emotions and is designed to give voice to what’s brewing inside, showing children how to name their emotions as they also learn to read. This Makes Me Feel Sad is the second title I worked on.
This Makes Me Sad follows a young boy after he accidentally lets his dog, Kit, loose from the yard. Despite his parents’ attempt to find her, nothing can cheer up the boy. His favorite things, like a pretty sunset, going to the park, and his beloved teddy bear, just make him more sad. Even happy memories of Kit no longer feel good. With help from his family, the boy must learn to accept and express how he’s feeling inside. And by dealing with his feelings, he might just be able to do some good until Kit comes home.
