Recent release “Creature” from Miriam Robertson and Hayley K. Robertson is an uplifting and emotionally important book that personifies anxiety and depression as a “creature in the chest,” in this case living in the heart of a young girl who struggles to understand what it is, what it wants, how it hurts and how it helps, how to deal with it in a healthy way, and, ultimately how to help others.

Pleasant Grove, UT, May 18, 2018 – Miriam Robertson, a gifted teacher and writer with over twenty years of experience working with teenagers and mental health issues, and Hayley Robertson, a high school senior honors student who started up the Semicolon Project at her school, have completed their new book, “Creature”: a thoughtful children’s book about coping with anxiety and depression.
Miriam and Hayley share from their book,
“There’s a creature in my chest!
It came from outer space.
I was minding my own business when . . .
Bam! We came face-to-face!
It was a mean and ugly creature.
Like something from a dream.
An uninvited guest.
So annoying and so mean.
Sometimes I barely notice it.
And sometimes it’s quite distracting.
It’s especially bad when I’m all alone.
That’s when it’s most distressing.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Miriam Robertson and Hayley K. Robertson’s new book is a sensitive and empowering book that provides children with a safe language to describe and think about their emotional and mental issues in a society that treats such topics as taboo.
Encouraging emotional intelligence and wisdom, children will also be prompted to develop compassion for others who may be suffering the same struggles.
Readers can purchase “Creature” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
