About the Book



Meet Blueloon a sad little balloon who is suffering from depression. With help from the wise rock, Blueloon learns what he can do to "bounce back" to being the way he used to be bright, round, and full with a very straight string.



Book Synopsis



I'm a blueloon. I'm supposed to be a regular balloon,
but I'm just not having fun like the others.
I'm kinda dull, and I'm kinda flat.
My string is tied up in knots.
I have a case of the blues...that's why I'm a blueloon.
I've felt like this for weeks!

Meet Blueloon a sad little balloon who is suffering from depression. With help from the wise rock, Blueloon learns what he can do to "bounce back" to being the way he used to be bright, round, and full with a very straight string!

Although clinical depression is often thought of as an adult disease, it can affect children, as well. Unfortunately, children may not have the maturity to understand what is happening to them, or they may feel powerless to change their situation, so they don't speak up about what they are going through. It is up to adults to be on the lookout for signs of trouble, and recognize when a child needs help.

Finally! A book on depression that works for Blueloons of all ages!



Review Quotes




I really enjoy all of her books, They deliver a message to kids of all ages that are struggling with these issues. Or can help siblings or friends understand. Very good!

Sandra Roemer



My little clients love this book. Very easy for a child with depression to relate to and understand. You can do fun therapy activities with balloons after reading the story.

About the Author



Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children's books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the "what to say" and the "how to say it."
