"Tears" - a bookwrap



A tender, affirming book about why we cry―and why it’s okay.

Interesting fact:  According to the Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO),  you make 15 to 30 gallons of tears every year.  Your tears are produced by lacrimal glands located above your eyes.  You will never run out of them.

Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Crying is a universal emotion response that shows what you are feeling.  Some tears taste salty and others make your eyes red and puffy.  Tears cultivate a special garden within you and help you to grow.  

This wonderful book validates crying and erases the shame of doing so.  It highlights scenarios where emotions evoke a waterfall that flows from your eyes and tumbles down your cheeks.  Some tears fall gently and slowly while others gush like a tsunami accentuating acute feelings of anger and frustration.  Crying washes your inside feelings out into the open and liquidly accentuates how you feel.  Tears certainly can be an important part of the healing process. 

The illustrations are extremely well done and kid-friendly, ones that kids can relate to I'm sure.  This would be a lovely addition to a classroom or school library and is a perfect catalyst to spark a conversation about when and why we cry.  I highly recommend this book.
