What I loved about The Princess and the Fog The metaphor of the fog for depression inexplicable not simply removable and xternal to the princess The princess parents want to just make the fog just go away and they are powerless to force it away The fog snuck in so gradually that no one really noticed it at first not ven the princess The book covers how the fog changes the princess Last Chance Bride energy levels mood concentration and ability to complete tasks The upward spiral for the princess includes fresh airxercise setting challenges for herself medication talking to wise counsel and time with friends The fog still comes back And the fact that the fog comes back does not negate all the good of the actions of the upward spiral What I didn t love The princess is pretty rude to her friend who keeps coming back and inviting her to do things Given that this is for some children their first depiction of a character with depression it s unfortunate that it suggests that a friend with depression might be rude or dismissive and that invitations to do things aren t helpful or will be received negatively For me being included by a friend to do something is very helpful Whos Cheatin Who? (Thoroughbred Legacy even if my mood is still low when I do it The princess starts to get better when one friend asks her to talk and she talks and talks and talks and talks with lots of people For many people talking about their depression just keeps them in a rumination cycle and it doesn t help relieve the symptoms of depression I would have loved to see one page at thend showing the reaction of the princess s loved ones when her fog returnsnot only that she knows where to turn when the fog returns but that they know that she is not the fog and they will keep loving her and being her friend through the fogDespite not loving a few Lawman Lover (Outlaws, elements of the story I love love love that this bookxists in the world There was a little girl who lived in England not any little girl though she was a princess The daughter of the King and ueen but she only knew them as mum and dad The princess had City Girl in Training everything a little girl couldver want and she was always happy She loved her friends she loved school she loved playing going outside and Mystery at Kittiwake Bay even doing homework She loved to do all of these things that were all part of herveryday life until the fog came The fog came slowly not all at once Not many people noticed it at first not Dangerous Waters (Cold Case Files even the princesses friends or her family But the process knew something was not right within her She started to dislike all of the things she usually loved to do playing with friends going outside watching shows reading books andven having fun all seemed like no fun to the princess when the fog was over her By this point the king and ueen and the princesses friends had all begun to notice something was off with their princess so they began to talk about it with her At first the princess couldn t find. Once upon a time there was a Princess She had The Husband (Smytheshire, Massachusetts, everything a little girl couldver want and she was happy That is until the fog cameThe Princess and the Fog is picture book to help sufferers of depression aged 5 7 cope with their difficult feelings It uses vibrant illustrations a sense of humour and metaphor to create a relatable njoyabl.

The right words to say when they asked her what was wrong or how they could help her Eventually she found those words and ven though talking didn t take the fog away completely talking to people about it helped the princess to feel much better When she talked with her parents about the fog they assured the princess that many people in the kingdom had fogs like hers so they took her to a castle where she could meet someone to help with her fog At the castle the princess learned that fogs happen to all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons and sometimes for no reason at all She learned that the she talked about her fog the better she felt and before she knew it the princess had started to loose the fog just as uickly as it had come to her Some of the major themes in this story are childhood obstacles courage depression the ability to overcome obstacles and hope I would highly recommend this book because it sheds bright light on a topic that is not only stigmatized but not often discussed among sufferers and their family members This book demonstrates the importance of talking about things when they aren t going great teaching children to cope with things they are struggling with isn t always what makes those things better and this book provides multiple ideas of what to do for sufferers of childhood depression I personally wish I had read this book An Italian Education earlier in my life so that I could have had a heightened awareness about how to handle friends of mine who might have been struggling with something like childhood depression and or other mental illnesses Very simple veryxcellent Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code explanation of depression its causes or lack thereof and what can help to make it better I don t think I ve seen a better description that doesn t use sarcastic gifs Talking about feelings andmotions with children is hard sometimes If children aren t sure where their feelings come from and with depression it s impossible to tell there s no Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, easy way to help There are books upon books to help children deal with simplemotions like anger or grief but nothing like this The Princess and the Fog casts no judgment on children or adults with depression it simply provides some manageable advice to help a child climb out and it does so beautifully Really Daddy Wanted excellent depiction of depression Accurate andasy for kids to understand My favorite part is that the story doesn t Forbidden Stranger end with her getting better her depression improves but it still returns from time to time The difference is she knows who to turn to for help now Loved the different depictions of methods to help with the fog sunshine outdoor activities and small achievable goals via the Adventurers medication via the Druid and therapy via the 1000 Year Old Wise Woman Plus the love and support of friends and family3 I used this book as a read aloud in anlementary classroom and it was spectacular ALL kids can re.

Late to this book It really helped the kids to visualize problem solving the fog being the problem For xample the King and ueen were desperately trying to help the Prince the most useful book i ve seen thus far for children to clearly Les brumes d'avalon : roman explain what depression is like a It is reassuring to know that picture books about tough issues can be done and done well The Princess never named a subtle writing techniue to be inclusive hadverything a little girl would want until the fog came Nobody noticed the fog until the Princess was completely surrounded by it Her parents tried to make her feel better but they didn t know how trying over and over again to make her happy until a friend asked the Princess if she wanted to talk At first reluctant the Princess Malakai (Wicked Games, eventually opened up and realized that the she talked about the fog the better she felt Some friends and adults just listened but some had similar things to say and someven offered adviceWonderful illustrations accompany this The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone empowering but not belittling book that may help children open up about their own depression or understand a family memberxperiencing depressionReview by Miss Kelsey Youth Services Vernon Area Public Library It begins as do many good stories Once upon a time there was a Princess This Princess was happy loved and content until the fog cameThis is a great book for promoting understanding and for Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, explaining depression in a way that children can relate It shows parents and teachers things to watch out for and willncourage children to talk about their feelings without judgement or fear of being thought sillyThe story is followed by a short guide for parents and carers which tells them things they may see how symptoms might appear and how they can helpDisclaimer I received a free copy from NetGalley in The Family Plan exchange for an honest review As an adult that s lived with depression since I was very young I can say with confidence that this is by far one of the most accurate descriptions of depression and how to deal with it that I vever read It covers how gradually a bad bout sets in So slowly that nobody really noticed at first and side A Family Practice effects such as not being able to do the things that are usuallynjoyable However my favorite part was when the princess finally figures out how to talk about the fog and her parents take her to the castle Druid who brews some potions for her to try they also visit the wise lder who teaches her about the fog and helps her talk about it ie couseling This is such a great way to normalize medication that helps with depression For years I felt guilty to take medication because of the stigmas attached to it I wish someone had normalized it for me when I was much youngerWhether you have a child that lives with depression or you re an adult that lives with depression I would highly recommend adding this sweet little book to your personal librar.
