Everybody Gets the Blues

Everybody Gets the Blues - Leslie Staub, R.G. Roth I liked this picture book that normalizes occasional sadness into something that is easily recognized, and potentially less isolating for children. I really like the illustrations, too. Inspired by the after effects of Katrina by a native of New Orleans, it is a useful tool for reaching out to children and assuring them that anyone can feel the blues, and that there is hope for happier times ahead.
