Perry Panda is a wonderful and astute book for young children, providing them with reassurance and advice if a parent is struggling with depression. Sometimes a hug and a smile are just what is needed -- these a child can freely give. -- Jonny Benjamin MBE and Neil Laybourn, Mental Health Campaigners This book simply and sensitively explains parental depression to young children using rhyme and pictures. It is a book that will be an invaluable resource to both parents and professionals. -- Dr Lucy Willetts, Clinical Psychologist Perry Panda is a much needed resource explaining depression to children who need reassurance that it isn't their fault. It describes in a beautifully simple but effective way what mum could be going through. I highly recommend it for mums, families and professionals as a conversation starter on the subject depression for young children. -- Rosey Adams, founder of PND and Me Being a parent can be tough and I get so many messages from parents who are struggling away in silence. Quite often they are also struggling with their mental health. Depression is now so evident in our society and I think Perry Panda plays a vital role in explaining it to children. This little story was heartwarming and brought me to tears. What a lovely, thoughtful thing to publish. -- Rachaele Hambleton, Part-Time Working Mummy (parttimeworkingmummy.com) An excellent book to blow away taboo. I wish I had had this book! -- Fern Britton, TV presenter and author, with experience of post-natal depression
