Pink Tears is a story about Lolly.
Everyone else is playing and no one is playing with Lolly. As she holds her feelings inside, she slowly starts turning from pink to blue. It starts in a small area near her heart.
She keeps her feelings inside, even though her parents ask if everything is alright.
One day she cries and cries and the blue goes away, she learns that it's good to get her feelings out.
From someone who has always kept her feelings inside, I think this is a great way of teaching kids , especially young girls, that is ok to cry or tell someone how you are feeling.
It took my almost 20 years to learn that!
I don't think we need to cry all the time or constantly share every feeling we have but get it out when we need to, have that good cry once in awhile.
Although I love Hana's way of writing, I would have liked a little more background on Lolly. Why was no one playing with Lolly? How long was she holding her feelings inside?
The illustrations, which were really cute, made it look like Lolly was shy (that's how I perceived it) but it would be good to know why she didn't play with others and how long she kept her feelings inside - how long it took her to turn blue.
I liked the story and what it was teaching!
