Chickadee usually loves to play outside, but recently, she’s been feeling discouraged and sad. But through the help of family and friends, Chickadee and others who face depression can begin to overcome their mental illness taking one step, two steps, three steps, four!
The mother/daughter co-writing team knows firsthand how difficult dealing with depression can be.
“My daughter’s struggle with anxiety and depression is what inspired us to write this book,” said Maria Luisa Salcines. “She is Chickadee!”
You Can Do It, Chickadee uses vivid, person-centered, age-appropriate language to describe the physical and emotional challenges brought on by depression. By going through the slow and deliberate process of putting one foot in front of the other, Chickadee models resilience, patience, and self-compassion for children who can relate to her thoughts and feelings.
