About this Book
In this sensitively written story, a young boy learns how to deal with a loved one who is
affected by mental illness. This upbeat and reassuring book is an important and helpful
guide for the frum community.
Dr. Jacob L. Freedman is a board-certified psychiatrist and was an award-winning chief resident at Harvard Medical School.
“Understanding and living with aberrant behavior is a major challenge even for adults. Children can be totally confused by what's going on. Sometimes they may come to grossly incorrect conclusions, which may impact their thoughts and emotions. Dr. Freedman has made a major contribution to helping youngsters cope with this problem.”
—Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski, zt”l
