With unmitigated honesty a touch of humor and sensitive illustrations by uentin Blake Michael Rosen explores the experience of sadness in a way that resonates with us allSometimes I'm sad and I don’t know whyIt's just a cloud that comes along Michael Rosens MOBI #194 and covers me upSad things happen to everyone and sometimes p This book is the best concrete example I have of why Goodreads needs to add an option for giving a book multiple reviews Many of us read books than once We read at different times in our lives We read books in different ways Because of that we have different opinions of the books we read as time passes When I first read this book I was teaching a children's literature class In that context I loved it because it talked about emotions without pandering to kids without being gooey or cutesy or saccharine I really liked seeing the message Sometimes people are sad It happens all the time That's okay I admired the book for being rare and honest But that was years ago Just a couple days ago I brought out this book to read it to my boy Most of what I remembered about the book is that it was touching and honest I thought it would be a good stepping off point that I could use to have a discussion with my boy What I didn't remember is that in this book the author talks about the death of his son It's central to what he's talking about He mentions it right at the beginning of the story saying he's sad a lot because his boy is dead He wishes he could talk to his mom about it but she's dead too When I first read this book I didn't have any kids I was able to appreciate the frank honesty of the book This time when I read the book I did so while sitting next to my own son And the first page hit me like a bucket of cold water Like I'd been punched in the gut I tried to read it to my boy on the fly paraphrasing and skipping over the fact that the reason the man was sad is that his son had died But it was too central to the story eventually I just gave up and suggested we read a different book I'm not opposed to talking to my son about death But I wasn't ready for it right then And I don't think at the age of 5 it's really productive to discuss it in terms of how badly his death would ruin me emotionally So yeah Is this a great book Yes Absolutely It's honest and emotional But reading it now as a father I don't enjoy it nearly as much and I don't think it's a good book for young children despite it being in picture book format I wish goodreads had some sort of mechanism for me to record my two different reviews of this book both different both eually valid but from two different times in my life This is something I've wanted to do on this site for a long time but this book has made me pointedly aware of that desire again Good books are not simple things and our responses to them are not simple either They change over time If goodreads is to be genuinely useful to people I think it needs some way to reflect that
