A Kids Book About Depression

A breath of fresh air

This was so so so good. I cried reading it. I don’t have kids yet but I’m so happy this book exists. It’s what I needed when I was a kid.


Good book. Very tough topic. Not sure if I would use this with K-2 kids.


Lacking substance. Disappointing.

Practical, simple, and compassionate

This book removes the veil over depression, often seen in the most complicated and sinister terms, and brings a relieving framework for those struggling to get a handle on what others are suffering. This author is honest without being "poor me." She speaks simply and whimsically, but without trivializing the issue. Even as an adult reader, I found myself saying, "YES, that's exactly how I felt when I was depressed!" and being encouraged that it's not the end of the world. If you know a child who interacts with a depressed loved one and is anxious about what it all means, get this book. It will bring them peace of mind. —Lisa Rae Morris, author of Time Tree: The Emergence
