This reassuring book is a gentle yet moving look at depression, seen through the eyes of a bewildered child. It's a great way to broach a difficult subject with little ones who might be suffering from the fall out of a condition they're too young to understand - children will take comfort from the message it's not their fault and that mummy will get better. The book is beautifully illustrated by Helen Braid and despite the dark subject matter, it's ultimately uplifting. Understanding, hope and optimism make for a lovely 'happy ever after'.
This book tackles a difficult subject in a way which somehow empathises with both the child and the mum. Well written and wonderful illustrations to accompany the story. If we're all honest, we have all suffered aspects of this behaviour even if we're not diagnosed as PND sufferers; therefore I feel the message conveyed by this book can help all mothers and children, not just those in a PND-affected family. Huge respect to the author for tackling this subject in this way.
This book is simply lovely. Beautiful illustrations, and it reads really well - it uses rhyme to soften what may actually be a difficult topic to bring up with a child. This book is perfect for parents who have suffered from depression or post natal depression - it gives parents an opening to discuss it with their children, while giving children the message that it is not their fault and that things will get better. I loved this book, and would highly recommend it.
