Summary
"Tears come in many forms. They can be big, small, heavy, fast, slow, quiet, and loud. They come from small kids, big kids, adults, and even scaly-skinned crocodiles. This book offers a compassionate way for kids to self-reflect on the different reasons they cry, stripping away stigma and shame, which stems from the association between crying and weakness. It sheds light on how tears make you stronger. It gently asks kids to check in on the emotions behind their tears (physical or emotional hurt, feeling overwhelmed, feeling lonely or crowded, from wanting attention or needing to escape attention). Ultimately, it is an ode to crying as a means of expressing what's going on inside, healing, and knowing when the tears have done their job--preparing kids for new adventures, rather than holding them back (which is shown on the final spread - "After we shed one tear, two tears, every tear we hold inside... we feel lighter, ready for new adventures.")"-- Provided by publisher.
