Everybody Gets the Blues

by Leslie Staub (2012, Harcourt, 16.99/hardback)

Why Are You So Sad?
: A Child’s Book About Parental Depression

by Beth Andrews (2002, Am. Psychological Assoc, 9.95)

I Feel Sad

by Brian Moses (1999, Sundance Publishing, 7.50)

This book discusses how sadness is sometimes caused by a dog getting sick, or parents arguing, or not being invited to a party, or when someone spoils a picture you paint at school. And, it points out how children can make other children sad—by calling them names, breaking their things, or saying mean things to them. The book ends: “If you feel sad, remember this—a frown is just a smile turned upside down.” Color. Grades K-3. [7.5” x 8”...32 pages]
