A Monster ate my Mum

Jen Faulkner, Australia, 2013

Related to Anxiety, Depression

This is a children’s book that is written in rhyme, looking at post natal depression (PND) from a child’s perspective. It is suitable for children from 2 years old and is a great way to help young kids to understand that ‘it’s not their fault’ and that ‘mummy will get better’. The book is beautifully illustrated by Helen Braid and ultimately delivers a hopeful message.

The book can be purchased online here or can be downloaded in PDF format for free from the website link above.
