Tears Are Not Forever / Las lágrimas no son para siempre (Best Behavior®)
Everybody cries! In this picture book, children learn how crying can help them and ways to cope with challenging feelings.
Everyone cries. Sometimes the tears are happy ones; often, though, they come from sadness or frustration. “If you’re sad or upset, the tears may come. Crying has a purpose: it lets your feelings out and shows others you might need help.”
Sadness and disappointment are common, recurring emotions that children can learn to understand, handle, and grow from. With vivid illustrations and straightforward suggestions, this English-Spanish bilingual picture book provides practical advice for coping with these challenging feelings. “Remember: tears are not forever. In time, you will feel better.”
A section for adults reinforces the book’s message that crying is a natural, normal response to strong feelings and includes tips and activities in both English and Spanish to help children express and handle their feelings.
