Crying is just for babies—right?
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said of Kate and M. Sarah Klise’s first picture book, Shall I Knit You A Hat?: “The Klises consistently sound notes of tenderness and humor.” They continue to do so as Little Rabbit and his mother return in a sweet new story.
Little Rabbit is about to turn five, and he decides he’s all through with crying. He doesn’t want crybabies at his birthday party, so he tells his friends they can come only if they’re big, like him, and don’t cry anymore. When all of his friends admit to crying sometimes, Little Rabbit is shocked. Does everybody cry? Why?
Why Do You Cry? is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:45 -0400)

As his fifth birthday party approaches, Little Rabbit decides to invite only those friends who are also too old to cry until he learns that others of all ages weep for all sorts of reasons.
