Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Written by a social worker, this book is especially for a young child whose parent is experiencing clinical depression. In simple language, the text defines depression by describing actual family situations that might illustrate what the parent is experiencing or how mom or dad might be behaving. The text's tone is reassuring as it describes the possible avenues a parent might take to feel better as well as help the child deal with their feelings of guilt or anger. Throughout, the reader is encouraged to vent their feelings through drawings in the spaces provided and use other physical activities such as sports or pounding pillows. Professionals, both for the child and the parent, are identified to help the child feel comfortable. A lengthy note to parents and others that may use this book provides tips on using the book and coping with the situation. The colored drawings of families and professionals helps to provide some normalcy to the often confusing situation. 2002, Magination Press, Ages 3 to 8.
