This poignant picture book deftly tackles the complex emotions of childhood, reminding readers that there’s nothing wrong with crying.

Sometimes it’s the sting from a fall that brings tears to your eyes, but other times it’s laughing so hard from a tickle fight that you start to cry.

Follow a young boy as he explores the wide range of emotions that cause him to cry—from joy to disappointment, from laughter to pain, from love to grief. Through moving and lyrical prose, Sometimes I Cry offers a gentle, necessary affirmation of the emotional complexity of growing up, particularly for a boy—and assures young readers that it’s okay to cry.
