Picture Book: The Princess and the Fog by Lloyd Jones

Pub Date: June 21, 2015

It's hard to imagine a depressed child, well at least for me it is. Children are supposed to be happy and go lucky and perfectly happy. What happens though when a child isn't? This is a perfect book for youngsters. For those of you who know children facing depression this could be a handy tool to let them know they are not alone and that the people around them could help. For children who are happy and don't have these problems it could be a useful tool to teach them why other kids are different and how they can help the depressed child out. Most importantly it teaches about friendship and leaning on those close to you.

I really enjoyed the illustrations in this title. The king and queen are something else with all their funny antics. They were willing to do anything to see their little princess smile. This would be a great addition to a storytime where we talk about how we are different. The book even includes a guide at the end for parents who are dealing with the issue of childhood depression.
