Me and My Fear | Francesca Sanna

Pickpick

I absolutely loved Me and My Fear written and illustrated by Francesca Sanna. It really showed just how big and unstoppable fear can get and feel. Many children have fears that to us seem small but for them can feel overwhelming. This is an amazing book to talk about different emotions and how no one is truly alone in what they are feeling.

Me and My Fear | Francesca Sanna

The illustrations within Me and My Fear are so amazing. The illustrator uses the size of white ghost looking creature to portray the size of the girls fear. As she becomes more afraid her fear becomes larger in size and prevents her from doing anything. By the end the illustrations show that everyone has a little fear they bring with them.

Catching Thoughts | Bonnie Clark

I feel very strongly towards this book because this is something that I know I struggle with, and I love the way it said to catch all these happy and true and calm thoughts. You could do a fun activity with students to create balloons of happy thoughts they can catch if they have a bad thought.

This book brings light to something that can often plague a lot of people, intrusive or unwanted thoughts. It shows the way it can feel overwhelming and horrible that it won‘t go away. It shows how you can learn to catch new thoughts. You can catch beautiful and hopeful thoughts.

A very short, sweet, cozy fantasy read! Gorgeous artwork with the wonderful message of not judging people before you get to know them.

Audiobook read by the author.
The first half might have been called "Reasons Why It's Bloody Difficult To Stay Alive": obviously that wouldn't sell many copies! I commend him for writing so clearly about combined anxiety and depression. It's an invaluable book, one that reminds you you're not alone in this and that all the weird things you're thinking and doing (and all the crap you tell yourself) is not YOU being mad: it's the depression talking.

This MG graphic novel series is seriously excellent. I was not expecting a child indecent assault subplot, but it is very well handled.
