When she reaches out to a trusted teacher, the little girl starts down a path of help and healing, beginning with identifying her blue moods as depression. A combination of talk therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes helps her leave her blues in yesterday and look forward to a brighter tomorrow.
Told with simple sentences and lush illustrations, Yesterday's Blue will be a valued resource for parents, teachers, and health professionals who work with kids dealing with depression, whether situational or systemic. And, critically, Yesterday's Blue will give kids a way to talk about their sad feelings and let them know they are not alone.
