She identified with the boy, she saw that their shared some of the same fears and rituals. BUT, then she started to worry that maybe there was something wrong with her because she did not share ALL of the same fears and rituals. She started to ask if I was an alien and had "bad thoughts" about the illustrations in the book. I had to stop reading it to her.
I think it was unfortunate and I hope an experience that only my child had with this book. I think there is a need for children's books about OCD and I applaud the author for writing what I think is a very entertaining, well-told, and realistic story with beautiful illustrations. I also applaud the author for writing a book geared for the younger crowd (there are not many).
I think parents of young children with OCD should buy this book and read it themselves first. You know your child best. Read it too them once and see how they take it. At the time I read it to my daughter, she was having OCD thoughts every ten minutes or sooner. Anything could set her off - including a book I thought would help. I think now that she has been symptom free for over three months, I could read it to her again without any problems and I am sure she would like it. I also think this would be a wonderful book for a young child who has a family member or friend suffering from OCD. It really does explain the disorder in terms a young child can easily grasp.
