Jenny Mei is Sad by Tracy Subisak

Dispatched within 7-10 working days.


My friend Jenny Mei is sad. But you might not be able to tell.


A heartfelt picture book that discusses the complexities of sadness and how friends support one another through hard times.

Jenny Mei still smiles a lot. She makes everyone laugh. And she still likes blue Popsicles the best. But, her friend knows that Jenny Mei is sad, and does her best to be there to support her.

Deftly illustrated with a light but sensitive touch, Jenny Mei Is Sad is the perfect picture book to introduce kids to the complexity of sadness, and to show them that the best way to be a good friend, especially to someone sad, is by being there for the fun, the not-fun, and everything in between.
