As a parent, I have found it challenging to discuss with my kids the whole Coronavirus situation. In the beginning, I was probably more inclined to hide it and block anything that had to do with news regarding it. Perhaps it was not a good idea as kids are really really observing and listening to everything.

They loved being at home with dad and mom, but that was breaking their everyday life, and they were noticing dad going out with a mask. So… we had to find ways to discuss this.

Among many, I happened to stumble an ebook from Axel Scheffler. In case the name does not ring a bell, he is the Gruffalo‘s illustrator, Pip and Posy‘s author (and illustrator), and co-creator to other beautiful books.

The book is an initiative of Nosy Crow, an independent children’s book publisher, and Axel Scheffler.

The book also had expert input from Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, three teachers (Sara Haynes, Alex Lundie, Monica Forty), and a child Psychologist(Doctor Sarah Carman).

As you can imagine, all contributors worked voluntarily for the book.

Your toddler and kids will probably enjoy it (maybe you even more) as it can give you trigger questions and open discussions.

Here is where you can find the ebook
