The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a warm, poignant and beautifully illustrated story set in a magical world where the tears of children arising from every emotion are of a different colour. An underlying thought-provoking message about emotions lies at its heart. The multi-coloured tears are collected by the tear thief for something truly wondrous. Read it to find out.
The Tear Thief by Carol Ann Duffy
Each night, in the hours between supper and bedtime the Tear Thief carries her waterproof, silvery sack over her shoulder as she soundlessly steals the tears of every child who cries. But what does she do with all of those tears? This tale illustrates a message to teach children to value true feelings.
