Book Review - Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka: How Play Therapy can Help Children with Depression by Amy Wilinski-Lyman (Author), Leela Green (Illustrator)
'eye catching illustrations helping a young person understand the difficult topic of depression.'
An ideal book to help a young person understand the difficult topic of depression whilst showing them that they are not alone in having off days, feeling down or lost. This lovely book cleverly uses a zoo instead of a school, using different bright and colorful animals that young readers can relate to helping them to open up and discuss how they are feeling.
The eye catching illustrations follow Lucky G, as he goes round the zoo asking for advice from the other zoo inhabitants on how Blue was feeling, demonstrating to the young reader that people who care and know them well will be concerned and notice a difference in their attitude and behaviour. Lucky G will help them feel that they can reach out and ask for help from someone when they need it. With the animals telling them it is okay to feel this way, I feel that they will respond to the advice rather than a person telling them.
A brilliant descriptive and excellent written book in short rhyming paragraphs and a book that can be read time after time, helping a young reader suffering from depression or knowing someone who is.
