Danny and the Blue Cloud: Coping With Childhood Depression (Shipped)
Danny was born under a blue cloud. He didn't know why, but sometimes the cloud made him cry. Some days he didn't want to get out of bed. Some days he was one big GROWL!
With the help of Barnaby the rabbit, Danny learns to think more helpful thoughts, feel better about himself, and dance his way into a better mood! He practices Barnaby's "Feel-Good Rules" until his cloud turns lighter and brighter.
Eventually, Danny learns that he has the power to turn even the biggest, bluest cloud into a beautiful rainbow!
Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers with more information about childhood depression and strategies to support your child's treatment. Hardcover.
The author James M. Foley is a licensed psychologist, experienced in treating children. So his stand-in in the story, Barnaby, knows what he’s talking about…. Danny and the Blue Cloud could be an invaluable resource for children who are coping with depression or know someone who is, and perhaps it could help the adults who read it with them develop some more compassion and understanding, as well.
