Annie’s Cat Is Sad


Author: Heather Smith


Illustrator: Karen Obuhanych



Annie comes home from school to find her cat, Delilah, has had a terrible day and is quite sad. What do you do when your friend is sad? Cheer them up with all the things they love! Annie tries TV, warm milk, and even yoga! But at the end of the day, no distraction can really make our bad days simply disappear, as Annie knows all too well. You just have to face them head on, maybe have a good cry, and find comfort in those you love.

Heather Smith has written a gentle picture book about how we sometimes have to sit in the sadness of a bad day before we can move beyond it. Paired with Karen Obuhanych’s bold, emotive illustrations, readers will feel seen with this relatable story.
