4 Interesting & Informative Books About COVID-19 For Kids

Dear teachers, here's something significant for your precious pupil quarantined at home. While in the lockdown, suggest them to read these interesting books and comic strips on COVID-19 to understand the situation and combat it without being afraid.

A Kids Book About COVID-19 By Malia Jones

The writer is a social-epidemiologist and via this ebook, pairs clean, bold design with kid-friendly language to explain COVID-19. Very light and comprehensible language is used in the book for explanatory purpose and for caution as well.

Jones also frankly addresses children’s emotions as: “I know this all might seem really scary and you might want to panic. It’s OK to feel whatever you are feeling.”  She concludes with actionable guidance, such as: “Don’t pick your nose!” and “Cocoon for a little while.”

The book is appropriate for ages 6 and up and available for free as a PDF or epub file for e-readers.
