Coronavirus - A book for children about Covid-19


Everyone recognises the illustrations of Axel Scheffler. He is most famous for illustrating stories by Julia Donaldson such as The Gruffalo, Snail and The Whale and Stick Man. Last year got together (virtually we are guessing!) with some subject-matter experts to illustrate a book for children about Coronavirus.

The book is aimed at children aged 5-9 and it answers some of the key questions about the Coronavirus and explains the pandemic in language children will understand. It tackles topics like:

• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?

You can download it free as a PDF from publishers Nosy Crow.
