Meeting My Therapist by Deanna Brown is an educational picture book for young children. A young child suffers from feelings of sadness and depression. The child's mother takes her to a place where she can talk to a professional about her feelings, and she even discovers play therapy. The child is reluctant to open up at first but the therapist's office is full of fun toys that distract the child enough for the therapist to question her. The therapist teaches the child to take three deep breaths to control her swirly, out-of-control head, allowing the child to see how beneficial it can be. By the end of the session, the child's outlook on her situation changes, and she even agrees to see the therapist again. If your child is struggling with similar feelings, you will benefit from reading this book. Pick up a copy and let the healing process begin.
Meeting My Therapist has many useful techniques to help children cope with their emotions. Children can experience many negative feelings whilst growing up, and it can be extremely overwhelming to the point where they may feel as if there isn't a way out. With a book like this, they can begin to tackle those feelings more positively, whilst also enjoying the beautiful illustrations. I recommend this book to anyone with children, whether they are struggling or not, as it can also serve as a preventative measure. Congrats, Deanna Brown, on this wonderful book!
