Sad ISBN: 9780754090052
Published by Cherrytree Books (Feelings series)
Each book in this series tells the stories of three children suffering from difficult emotional situations. Each story has questions along with it to help the discussion, and children are encouraged to talk about their feelings with someone who cares. The three chapters in 'Sad' deal with death, moving house, and illness. The adults in these books help the children cope remarkably well, and their reactions to children's problems could be a good lesson in psychology for parents. Multiracial families are in evidence, and the large print and coloured illustrations make the series accessible.
