Sadness comes to visit unexpectedly. But when you let sadness in, you’ll discover this strange guest is not what it seems.
When Sadness arrives, try not to be afraid: give it a name, listen to it and spend some time together. Maybe all it wants is to know that it’s welcome. This beautiful debut by new author-illustrator talent Eva Eland takes a poignant but uplifting look at dealing with uncomfortable emotions.
This is such a stunning, touching and emotive picture book. It looks at embracing sadness and not being afraid when it arrives. It gives subtle tips on how to deal with it and lets your little ones know that it doesn’t stay forever. The illustrations are calming and beautiful with soft colours and with just enough on each page to tell the story.
When Sadness Comes to Call is a beautiful calming story that will be perfect for helping young ones to understand their feelings and accept that they are all a part of life.
