One moment you are happy, so happy that you’re dancing all around and having a bunch of fun. But, you’re also in danger because, you think you’re invincible (that means, you think you can do anything maybe even fly) The next moment, you’re sad. Very, very sad. You lay around doing absolutely nothing except maybe cry. Sometimes you want to—

These are some of the things a person who has bipolar disorder experience. Imagine what that must feel like if you are ten years old and the person acting that way is your parent. Peter and Lisa is a picture book for children which discusses two mental illnesses bipolar and depression.

Peter and Lisa is a well written SPECIAL NEEDS read that shows the two illnesses in great detail, thus providing children with the information they need to understand and live with a person who has a mental illness. Yet, it was clear that a child could not handle a parent on their own by providing a support system for the parent.


Peter and Lisa is recommended for All Ages.
