Description

This thoughtful, poetic book uses metaphors and beautiful imagery to explore the reasons for our tears.

In a soft voice, Mario asks, "Mother, why do we cry?" And his mother begins to tell him about the many reasons for our tears. We cry because our sadness is so huge it must escape from our bodies. We cry because we don't understand the world, and our tears go in search of an answer. Most important, she tells him, we cry because we feel like crying. And, as she shows him then, sometimes we feel like crying for joy. This warm, reassuring hug of a book makes clear that everyone is allowed to cry, and that everyone does.
