There’s something about me and sad bunnies. A bunny just seems to be able to convey sadness more than any other cartoon animal. The presence of a bunny character in When I’m Feeling Sad alone doesn’t make it a winner, but it certainly helps.Seeing as I’ve spent a good portion of my life feeling sad, I found this to be a wonderful book.

It validates children’s feelings and tells them that it’s OK to feel sad. This is a tremendously important aspect- emotions are messy things and our culture actively suppresses them. I feel I was always discouraged from expressing strong emotions as a child, as a result, to this day I hold them inside.

(I wish I would have had this book!)For children, this is a profoundly relatable book. For adults, When I’m Feeling Sad is pretty much a primer on depression.When I’m feeling sad,I feel like someone has taken awayAll of the colors, and everythingis gray and gloomy and droopy.When I’m feeling sad, I feel like I couldCry and cryAnd cry soooo much that I make a flood!I want to crawl into my bed,pull the covers over my head,and stay there until the sadness goes away.Been there, done that.

If this were a book for adults, the only thing missing would be a visit to Dr. Rabbit and a prescription for carrot-flavored Prozac.All right, great book, great illustrations. The only aspect of the book I didn’t like was the pronoun “it” being used to describe the bunny at the book’s conclusion, and the phrase “something dies” to describe a the death of a pet.
