Learn more about OCD and what it's like to live with it.

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is a mental health condition. People with OCD have recurring, repetitive thoughts that can feel impossible to ignore. This book was written by a kid who has OCD, and illustrated by a grownup who has OCD, too. It offers a unique insight into the condition, a warmth and openness about what it is like, and the opportunity for readers to grow in understanding.

Hazel Hall (she/her) lives in Portland, Oregon, with her mom, dad, and brother. She likes frogs, soccer, and her 2 amazing fluffy dogs! Hazel especially loves any food that’s sour. :)

McKenzie Young-Roy (she/her) is an illustrator/designer tackling mental health subjects with art from the home she shares with her husband and cats in Portland, Oregon.

Great Book!

A Kids Book About OCD is an absolute gem in the sea of resources for kids and parents diving into the world of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Its gentle yet super informative tone guides kids and grownups through the maze of OCD with understanding and empowerment. And I loved the illustrations! But here's the cherry on top: it's penned by an 11-year-old with OCD! How cool is that? It's real and it's relatable!

This book is beautifully executed. From the easy to understand yet impactful prose to the gorgeous illustrations, it teaches kids about what OCD is and how it's treated in a non-judgmental, digestible, and engaging way. The fact that this book was written and illustrated by people with OCD is just the icing on the cake. You can feel and see Hazel and Mackenzie's compassion for and deep understanding of those with OCD. I felt less alone reading it and I think you will too.
