I'm Sad (I'm Bored! #2) Reviews
Book #2 in “I’m Bored” series
I fell in love with the cleverness in using unorthodox characters to tell the story. The three characters tell one another what brings out their sadness. They talk about how they cope with their sadness but what works for one will not work for the other two. Then they find there is one thing they share that will bring them out of sadness.
We learn that it is all right to be sad sometimes.
Thank you Simon Schuster Children's for sending my little guys this super cute book to read and review. Liam said he would give this book "A Super Lot Of Stars"
We really enjoyed this story and my boys loved the potato and thought it was hilarious when he said "I Don't Even Like You Know" and than that made all of them laugh, and the flamingo felt a bit more happy. This was such a great story, and I love that it teaches kids that it's okay to be sad, and it's okay to tell people when you are sad. ...more
Fred Rogers once said, "Young children don't know that sadness isn't forever." I'm Sad sums up this quote perfectly.
Very cute and thoughtful points on feeling sad. Will help all readers remember that you are still you when you're sad and that it's okay to be sad.
I’m not sure why a girl, a flamingo and a potato are friends, but the silliness of their friendship is cute. Simple message that it’s ok to be sad sometimes.
Another great book from Michael Ian Black and Debbie Ohi.
While this book is fun to read, it's also a great addition to your SEL collection.
Loved this one. Helping kids navigate feelings can be hard, and this book will make it easier for them to grasp, along with entertaining them. I appreciated the humor, though I can also see a question of whether the humor of the ending is in an appropriate tone for the message. But it left me laughing. And a definite read-aloud, especially for kids who might be feeling sad, or need to be a good friend to someone who is.
