This informative and accessible guide for young readers defines the coronavirus, explains why everyday routines have been disrupted, and lays out how everyone can do their part to help. With child-appropriate answers and explanations, the book addresses key questions, like: How do you catch coronavirus and what happens if you have it? Why are people so worried about it? Is there a cure? Why do we have to stay home? What can I do to help? And what happens next?
Candlewick is ever so grateful to our friends at Nosy Crow for creating this important FREE digital book. Developed with input from a professor of infectious disease, it was downloaded more than 500,000 times in the first few days it was made available.
The illustrations by Axel Scheffler are so bright and playful and the final pages so hopeful:
"One day, quite soon, though nobody knows exactly when, you'll be able to visit people you love who don't live with you, play with your friends, go to school again and do l lots of other things that you enjoy but that you can't do now. One day, this strange time will be over."
