I’M SAD launches June fifth! My very own emotions about our new image e-book from Simon & Schuster BFYR

 I cried once I first obtained the manuscript from my S&S editor (due to what was stepping into my life on the time). It was a superb sort of cry. I additionally laughed out loud (additionally a lot wanted). My hope is that our e-book helps children perceive that feelings can generally be sophisticated and onerous to precise, and to assist them acknowledge their feelings….even the detrimental ones. One thing I’m nonetheless studying, as a grown-up!

John Schumacher (aka Mr. Schu) requested Michael what impressed him to put in writing I’M SAD. Michael’s reply:

“So usually, when our youngsters (or our pals or co-workers or whomever) are unhappy, our intuition is to attempt to make them really feel higher as a substitute of simply being there for them in a supportive manner with out essentially attempting to ‘remedy’ their unhappiness. All of us really feel unhappy generally, and after we do, it’s good to know we’ve got individuals (or potatoes) in our lives who gained’t suppose any much less of us for feeling the way in which we really feel and who will nonetheless love us it doesn’t matter what.”

And right here’s an ideal video about I’M SAD from instructor Colby Sharp:
