A Shelter for Sadness

£12.99

ANNE BOOTH and DAVID LITCHFIELD

Sadness has come to live with me
and I am building it a shelter.
I am building a shelter for my sadness
and welcoming it inside.

A small boy creates a shelter for his sadness, a safe space where Sadness is welcome, where it can curl up small, or be as big as it can be, where it can be noisy or quiet, or anything in between. The boy can visit the shelter whenever he needs to, every day, sometimes every hour, and the two of them will cry and talk or just sit, saying nothing.

And the boy knows that one day Sadness may come out of the shelter, and together they will look out at the world, and see how beautiful it is.

A poignant and heart-warming picture book exploring the importance of making space and time for our own griefs, small or large, sensitively visualised with David Litchfield's stunning illustration.
