I grew up with undiagnosed bipolar disorder and have a lot of difficulty figuring out what is "normal" kid stuff and what is bipolar disorder when helping my 11-year-old with her bipolar disorder. Not only does the book explain the symptoms of bipolar disorder, but it also gives examples from a kid's perspective of the symptoms. The book is written so that even my 11-year-old was able to read and understand what she was reading. Since we both can understand what the symptoms are, it is easier to understand what the problem is that she is experiencing and we are able to figure out how to work on it. She also has a better idea of what information her Psychologist and Psychiatrist need to know so they can help her.

If you are looking for a book that helps with understanding what exactly a bipolar child is going through and what/how they are thinking, then this is the book for you. It was wonderful to read this book both alone and with our child. We often read passages to our child to see if he was feeling similar things, or going through similar experiences. Through the words of other children, it helped us to understand our child better, get to know him more and become more familiar and versed in what he was going thorugh. It gave us a significantly greater understanding of his experience. It also helped substanially to know that he is not alone, and we are not alone, with various thoughts and feelings we all have and go through with this disorder- that we are not alone in our experiences. We have given this book to our child's classroom teacher each year, and to any speacial ed teachers or counselors that he may be working with. Each time they comment on how unique and useful the book's perspective is- that it really helps them to understand this illness and to be able to look at it and understand it from the child's eyes, perspective, and to hear about it in their words... excellent resource and tool for anyone working with a bipolar child, an absolute must have.
