It’s okay: Why Do We Cry? by Fran Pintadera

This picture book beautifully normalizes the reasons why children (and adults) may cry.  It passes no judgment and does not belittle.  Rather, some of the many reasons for tears are described; these include anger, sadness and happiness among others. Crying is seen as a normal response to being human.  At the end of the book, there is additional information, some of it scientific, about tears.  The book is sensitively illustrated with gorgeous pictures that enhance the text. This would be a great title to share with a child you know.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.
