"This unique children's book is one of the first I have seen to provide an accurate and understandable description of how clinical-level sadness might be experienced by a young child. It also describes useful age-appropriate emotion management strategies that can be implemented at home. The book will be a valuable resource for parents and children as they seek to better understand how to help children experience and manage intense sadness"--Joan Luby, M.D., professor of psychiatry, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis
"What a delightful book! Identifying how you feel is the first positive pillar parents can teach their children, empowering them whilst giving the tender nurturing they need to feel mentally and emotionally well again."--Jo Frost, global parenting expert and family consultant, executive producer of the award-winning international television show Supernanny
