It is beautifully and brightly illustrated that enhances each sentence on the page. This is one book I could see a parent reading with a child and also discussing the pictures. Fortunately, this is also another picture book that shows a variety of diversity in the people shown on the pages. The sentences are simple and also bring about full understanding for the aimed age group. This book shows that children, and yes, also adults can experience grief for a variety of reasons: From death, to the loss of a pet, a move, and possible changes in life such as divorce. The book also shows children that they may feel a variety of different ways with their grief and that is ok. Throughout the book there are even questions posed to the child that they can answer, which in turn may help the adult they are reading the story with know how to help. It also shows how children can deal with their grief in a positive way. At the end there are resources given for both kids and adults to help with the grieving process. This is a very well done children’s book that will help all children as they will at some point in life experience some kind of grief. I received a copy from the publisher via Amazon Vine.

    Why Do I Feel So Sad? encourages children to name their loss and normalizes the grief process with plenty of examples, experiences, and emotions. Tracy Lambert-Prater brings her background as a LPC to these pages, distilling what’s happening on a mental/emotional level in a way kids can relate to. Included are creative ways for kids to cope and process, along with grief resources for caregivers. I think this book gives language to a trickier subject and would be helpful for families, educators, Why Do I Feel So Sad? encourages children to name their loss and normalizes the grief process with plenty of examples, experiences, and emotions.

    I received this ebook in exchange for an honest and fair review. What a nice book to share with a younger child that is going through hard times. As the book said, people grieve for different reasons and it is displayed in various ways as well. Many kids may be feeling grief as a result of the current pandemic. The coping skills in this book are easily understood and helpful. The illustrations were awesome! I will definitely get a copy of this book for my classroom.

    Why Do I Feel So Sad? is a picture book about grief. It was written for children ages 5-7 years old. This book deals with grief of all types. It goes into detail about the many ways we show sadness. It accurately explains the range of feelings that come with grief. It also gives suggestions on ways to cope. I think this book is important for children to read to help them understand their emotions. The pictures are also well done.

    Simple and direct text helps explain grief and the various reasons someone may be grieving. The text does not limit grief to a death, but brings in different situations.
