The coronavirus has turned our world upside-down. Our lives probably look very different than they did at this time last year. Children are also feeling the effects of these changes and many do not really understand why these changes have occurred. Explaining the current situation to children can be difficult, but there are resources available to help. Candlewick Press has released a free and downloadable book about coronavirus that was developed especially for children.
This book discusses coronavirus and germs and offers tips as to how children can help limit their chances of either themselves or their loved ones getting sick. In addition, the book offers an explanation as to why places in the community have closed as well as ways people can help during this crisis. Links to additional resources are also included at the end of the book.
