"Catch a Falling Star - A Tale from the Iris the Dragon Series" is the first book in the series. It presents readers with a variety of symptoms that could be considered ‘red flags’ in a child’s emotional and social development. The book is intended as an introduction to the topic of mental health challenges and strives to educate children on the importance of sharing their thoughts and worries with a caregiver. Dr. Joseph H. Beichman, Clinical Director for the Child Psychiatry, Program at the Hospital for Sick Children states, “This charming, beautifully illustrated book, speaks to children in language they can understand. At once playful and imaginative, it is also realistic and poignant in a way that captures children's fears, worries and the longing for the comfort of a wise and caring friend……This book humanizes children's suffering, puts a face to it, and speaks to parents, educators and others about the pain and anguish mental illness can bring; pain that is often invisible and easily misunderstood. Iris helps pull the cover off children's problems showing a simple, easy to understand way that some worries don't just go away, they can grow and intensify, but that help can be found.”
