As I said before I was on the lookout for resources to read to my children about Bipolar Disorder. I found another book that they loved and understood.

Written by Bryna Herbert, this book is told from the perspective of a little boy with bipolar disorder. Robert, the boy, shares with readers what the emotions associated with the disorder feel like and strategies he has learned from doctors on ways to cope. My two oldest (5 and 8) were able to understand the book, so I would say it is suited well for elementary aged kiddos.

My son is beginning to get to the age where he notices things are different for him than for other kids.  I decided to find a few books that will hopefully help him understand and cope.  So far, I have only found one book, they seem to be hard to find.
Brandon and the Bipolar Bear by Tracy Anglada is an excellent book for children.  It explains a hard to understand illness in a way that both children and parents can understand.  Not only did I read this to my son, but my daughter as well.  It helped her to understand what her brother is going through.

I am still on the look out for good children’s books on bipolar, ADHD, and mood disorders.  Please share if you have found a good resource.
