Younger children understand a lot more than parents might imagine about coronavirus. Talking with them about the virus will not only help you understand what they know but also give you the opportunity to dispel any myths, helping to prevent further anxieties down the line.
We thought these two free publications were particularly helpful in explaining coronavirus in a child friendly way.
The first book is beautifully illustrated by one of our favourite children’s authors and illustrators, Axel Schleffer.
Our second choice, Dr. Dog explains Coronavirus is especially good for younger children and is illustrated by Lydia Monks.
We hope you and your families are keeping safe and well and enjoy these books with your children.
