A New Virus Has Arrived is a very special book for children of all ages, even parents and grandparents too. With beautiful illustrations, it explains the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in a sensitive and meaningful way.
We respect children as curious and capable individuals. They are constantly making sense of their interactions and building an understanding of the world. As parents, we have an innate desire to protect our children against anything harmful. Instead of succumbing to our fears, let us instead engage and connect with our children as we support them in navigating the world.
We hope this book opens up opportunities for dialogue and learning, for both child and adult.
