It's Brave to Cry, Hardback Book

It's Brave to Cry Hardback



Clay, is a seven year old Black boy who has trouble expressing his emotions. After a hard day at school, Clay's father is encouraging him to feel empowered to share his feelings and that it is brave to do so. Unconvinced, Clay finds himself asking the bravest people he can think of to see if they ever cry and if so, why. He walks to his local firefighter station, finds a high-rise window-washer in the city, he reaches out to his favorite teacher and more! After speaking with all of these brave African-American men and women in very brave professions, he discovers that everyone cries for many different reasons, that it is important to express yourself, and that it is okay to reach out for help when you need to. He finally understands that hiding your feelings isn't actually brave- but letting them out is!
