This is a sweet book, that will help children and parents deal with their emotions in a healthy way. So many times children, especially boys, are told to stop crying, or that, "big boys don't cry." This book focuses in on the importance of crying. I love how the rabbit/child in the story can't understand how an adult could cry because they are happy, or for no reason at all! Children only associate crying with negative emotions, they don't cry when they're happy. If they do, I've never seen it!
Anyway, the rabbit wants to invite only his friends who have matured enough that they don't cry any more to his birthday party. One by one, his friends tell him some of the reasons they cry, and can't come to his party. Of course it all ends well, but you'll have to read this delightful book to find out the end! The illustrations are super cute, and detailed.
