Coronavirus: A Book for Children

Front Cover

What is the coronavirus, and why is everyone talking about it?


Engagingly illustrated by Axel Scheffler, this approachable and timely book helps answer these questions and many more, providing children aged 5-10 and their parents with clear and accessible explanations about the coronavirus and its effects - both from a health perspective and the impact it has on a family’s day-to-day life.

With input from expert consultant Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, as well as advice from teachers and child psychologists, this is a practical and informative resource to help explain the changes we are currently all experiencing.

The book is free to read and download, but Nosy Crow would like to encourage readers, should they feel in a position to, to make a donation to: https://www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk/

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - villemezbrown - LibraryThing

Annual Goodreads Choice Awards reading project: Read all the Picture Book nominees! (7 of 15) A dry and text-heavy presentation, but a bonus star for getting some good information out quickly. If more adults had read this, maybe we wouldn't be where we are now in infection rates and deaths. Read full review
