'Harry and Hopper' by Margaret Wild, will make you go "Aaawwww..." When Harry's beloved dog dies suddenly, he's just not ready to say goodbye. Very sweet, Max and I read this one over and over. A good book for when you're feeling sad.
Dr. Seuss' 'My Many Coloured Days' is another good book for thinking about all your feelings...
So is Michael Rosen's Sad Book. Even though things happen and we feel like we'll never be happy again... happiness comes!
It's important for kids to know that it's okay to feel sad, homesick, angry, miss someone who has died, or just feel moody. We can't be happy all the time!
