I'm Sad (I'm Bored! #2) Reviews
First of all, it's a story about a girl, a potato, and a flamingo. Bonus points for that. Second, it is the sweetest darn book! Flamingo is sad and he is trying not to be sad any more.
I loved this book.
Very cute and thoughtful points on feeling sad. Will help all readers remember that you are still you when you're sad and that it's okay to be sad.
I’m not sure why a girl, a flamingo and a potato are friends, but the silliness of their friendship is cute. Simple message that it’s ok to be sad sometimes.
I have to say this book made me sad....The flamingo on the front is adorable but the content inside was meh.
I understand the need to teach children that being sad is ok, and it is very important. I think this missed the mark....around the time the potato was added in. I have not read "I'm bored" so maybe that is where the potato came in...so maybe if I get around to reading that one I will change my rating of this one. As a stand alone book I would only give it a one though.
First off, I love Michael Ian Black and Debbie Ohi. This is the second book in the I'm Bored series. I love that this book addresses that idea that sometimes people are just sad...and it's OK to be sad. The character work through this emotion and try to cheer each other up. However, it still leaves the reader knowing that feeling sad from time to time is perfectly normal.
What a great premise: It's okay to be sad but it will get better.
“Sometimes when I’m sad, it feels kind of good to let myself be sad.”
Flamingo is feeling sad. His friends try to help him. First, they assure Flamingo that everyone gets sad, but it doesn’t last forever. Then, the girl and potato come up with the things that make them feel happy, like ice cream and dirt. Finally, they let Flamingo know that even when he is sad, they’ll still like him. Well, potato doesn’t like him now ... Ha Ha!
Simple text, but a great book to read to help kids understand their ...more
This is nice because it tells you it's okay to be sad. It's not really funny like their other books, but it is a bit silly.
