It's pretty sweet, but if you're a sixth grader hoping for a chapter book, then it's not amazing, but I will admit it's perfect for little kids. I flew through it so fast, Sora said I spent zero minutes on it!
Crying is Like the Rain: A Story of Mindfulness and Feelings
By Heather Feinberg
A gentle metaphor for coping with anxiety and sadness.
Feelings come and go like the weather, and crying is like the rain. The words of this gentle book elaborate this soothing, encouraging theme, while the pictures tell a story of a little boy tearfully bound for his first day of school in the company of his older and wiser sister.
“Have you ever noticed that after a storm ends, the whole earth feels like it took a big deep breath? And then we can search for a beautiful rainbow. It’s the same for you and me. When we relax into our tears, we remember they have lessons to teach us. They are here to connect us to ourselves, deep inside. We can learn to express and share our feelings in ways that are safe for everyone. And then we can look inside for our very own rainbow. Crying is like the rain.”color throughout
