    A young boy does not want to feel sad so he pushes away everything that makes him sada tree his parents pets blocks etc Eventually he is alone surrounded by blackness It doesn't take long before he realizes that the things that make him sad also make him happyThe text is written in verse some wordsphrases are emphasized in bold to express the feelings of the boy The illustrations are somewhat expressive but the message of the text is the highlight of the book Excellent book to read with everyone


  2. Chris Taylor Chris Taylor says:

    If this book was well written I would give it an emphatic 5 stars The message is excellent and at a level children will have no problem understanding and applying It captures not only feeling of sadness and the fear of loss it touches on a bigger theme the fear of having feelings that are too strong the false belief that we both children adults can protect ourselves from the world

    deals with depression well

    Rating 35 Even though this book was an easy read I thought that the storyline fell a little flat for me On the upside I did appreciate both the illustrations and the message of the book

    A fabulous book and rare find A little boy doesn't want to be sad and so he wishes away everything in his life that could potentially make him sad until there is nothing left and then realizes the big lesson the one we're probably all still learning that wrapped up in the things that can make us sad are the things that also make us happy and vice versa The trick is learning to appreciate it all or at least not being afraid of it If we could give this one 10 stars we would just for the message alone


  6. Carolyn Carolyn says:

    wonderful book to help children deal with sadness the message is similar to the movie inside out but predates it it also is empowering because it's the boy taking action and learning and not something separate from himself

  9. Lupine Lupine says:

    The audience is limited for this but in the right situation it's an excellent choice


  10. Lara Lara says:

    Probably a pretty niche audience but that doesn't make it any less of a book It's a really good book for addressing emotions and especially depression and how we deal with these issues Might not read it in a storytime but it would be a good one to have available at a storytime on feelings a supplemental storytime book
