'My Dad built me the best and wackiest cubby ever' by Dr Monika Schott is a beautiful, compassionate story for kids aged 6-12 years about a child and father navigating the dad's mental health struggles.
Told through the eyes of a child, the book 'My Dad built me the best and wackiest cubby ever' tells the touching story of a child and father setting out to build a cubbyhouse under streaming sunshine, until clouds snake in on a hazing horizon… skies swell, a clouding storm brews and finally breaks and swirls into pouring rains and eventually subsides. All the while, the cubby grows wackier, with the rustiest of riches that rattle and rule! This is all a metaphor for the father's mental ill health that gently aligns with the building of the cubby, and changing emotions and weather. The book is available from e-retailers including Amazon, Booktopia, and Barnes & Noble.
