By normalizing the experience of feeling sad and lonely, I think this book can help children to feel less alone. By offering practical suggestions without minimizing the real pain that can accompany depression, Dr. Crist offers hope and understanding. He is also careful to differentiate between the "blues" and clinical depression and emphasizes the importance of getting professional help with the latter.
The lay-out of the book is clear and easy to follow. The reader can either choose chapters that catch his/her interest or read the book from cover to cover. The purple illustrations are eye-catching and add visual interest, as do the comments in purple ink in the margins of some pages. Children from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds will see themselves reflected in the book's illustrations.
