An evocative, deeply moving picture book that tells an honest tale of depression, empathy, and hope, by debut talent Tyler Charlton.
Sometimes, the wave takes me away.
I don’t see it coming, and when it does,
I feel lonely. And sad.
I end up pushing people away.
But we can float in the water,
And keep breathing.
Together, we can ride out the wave.
Debut author-illustrator Tyler Charlton introduces the metaphor of the wave that makes this a relatable and age appropriate entry point for discussions about depression and creates a tangible access to talking about emotions.
