    One thought on “Meh: A Story About Depression”

    1. It doesn't have any words, but Meh is a beautiful visual journey through depression. It provides a great way to introduce mental health issues to children from a young age.It's an amazing use of color and texture to compare to show mental state. Very cool visually.

    2. WORDLESS BOOK #1: Meh: a Story about Depression is a realistic fiction book written by Deborah Malcolm. The reason this book is considered a realistic fiction because it is a story that uses made up characters but could happen in real life. This book would be great for primary and intermediate readers, because it focuses on a heavy topic as depression but teaches children through pictures which is why I think it would be great for both.TEXT TO SELF: This book reminds me of myself for many reason [...]

    3. In this wordless picture book, the main character of the story gets sucked into the darkness and needs to find a way out. The wordless pages help make this book a great talking piece as the readers work to determine what is going on.

    4. It's hard to review a book with no words, but I'm going to try.This is a story told in pictures. It tells how suddenly it can sneak up on you, how alone it will make you feel and how you have the power to dig yourself out of it. Huh, and all without words.There is some study-guide like material at the back to help discussion and can be used to help children deal with their own depression (but if it's serious, do seek professional help).

    5. 2.5 stars. I received a free copy of this book through Good Reads Giveaways. I was surprised to see this book had no words. My 9 year old made a storyline as she looked at the pictures that was interesting to listen to, but this book didn't start the dialogue I was hoping it would surrounding depression.

    6. When I was asked to consider this book for review, the cute white cat got pointed out to me as a feature of the story I may like. I thought so too, and the cat is adorable! I love the way the little white paw prints appear in some scenes, and how slowly the cat brings the nameless boy (no words in the story) out of his depression. This is a brilliant book which doesn't need words – it's up to the reader (especially if they have someone older with them) to figure out what's going on, and it mea [...]

    7. Love how this book invites the reader to quietly think, reflect and interpret. The visual narrative alone tells the tale (there are no words in the story) . It's an excellent tool for supporting emotional literacy, self awareness and empathy skills.Read more of my review on my blogpost here: missusbspicturebookreviews.blo

    8. I love that this book has no words but beautiful illustrations because it allows the reader to draw conclusions about an illness that is so personal and so different for everyone. The questions in the back of the book are great for discussing with your kids or students.

    9. Beautiful expressive and the questions at the end for people to ask and discuss with adults and children is wonderful.

    10. Wonderful tool for talking to children about depression - whether it is they who are feeling it or someone they Know or love. It doesn't tell them what to think, but gives them some insight.
