therapeutic children’s book by Amalia Lynge Pedersen, illustrated by Christian Fleischer Rex


the book

Juulut and Nivi’s mother is mentally ill. How to react as a child? What is real and what is not? And who to talk to? Amalia Lynge Pedersen has rewritten the Danish children’s book Mor er psykisk syg and adapted the story to Greenlandic conditions. The book encourages conversation between parent/adult and child.


the author

Amalia Lynge Pedersen has a master’s degree in psychology. She got the idea to write therapeutic children’s books after she read Når mor og far drikker by Anna Rosenbeck and Inger Thormann. Anaana ataatalu aalakooraangata is the first in a series of four therapeutic books for children.
