A beautiful story about sadness, depression and hope.
Blue lives in the darkest depths of the forest. He has long forgotten how to fly, sing and play. The other birds swoop and soar in the sky above him, the sun warming their feathers. But Blue never joins in.
Until, one day, Yellow arrives. Step by step, Yellow reaches out to Blue. With patience and kindness. And little by little, everything changes...
A thoughtful and uplifting story. Perfect for helping children learn how to deal with and understand sadness, and how to be there for people in their lives struggling with depression.
The perfect picture book for our times about reaching out and making an effort with those around us who seem lonely. It shows us all that we make a big difference in the happiness, confidence and resilience of others when we show kindness and patience. Teckentrup is one of my favourite author/illustrators who always presents an intelligent and thoughtful depiction of complex ideas in ways that children can understand and discuss with the grown-ups around them. Timeless!
