Jane’s Dismal Day: A Catholic Child’s Book about Sadness
Author: Christine Gibson
Illustrated by: Michael Rogers
Jane has never been sadder. Her beloved family dog has died. Throughout the day, Jane found nothing to smile about, nothing to laugh about. She almost felt mad at her friends who were having a good time.
In Jane’s Dismal Day, children will learn how to handle the tricky emotion of sadness with the help of their Catholic Faith!
Find more to help your children or students identify and manage the emotions they are feeling in the companion books Alex Blows His Top and Andrew Is Up All Night. Written by a Catholic school counselor, this series from OSV Kids provides a Catholic approach to emotions that integrates practical responses with spiritual guidance for handling emotions with the Lord’s help.
By the end of each book in this series, children will learn what that particular emotion looks and feels like, and that the emotion itself is normal. Bible stories, wisdom from saints, and prayer are also included so that children can understand that even great heroes of the Bible and saints through the ages have felt the same way
