How to Handle Sadness

In Jane’s Dismal Day, children will learn how to handle the tricky emotion of sadness with the help of their Catholic Faith!

By the end of each book in this series, children will learn what that sadness 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.
