Corona Virus Info for Young Children
This is a short book to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding the COVID-19.
The author Manuela Molina, suggests this book is an invitation for families to discuss the full range of emotions arising from the current situation. She stresses it is important to point out that this resource does not seek to be a source of scientific information, but rather a tool based on fantasy.
Her recommendation is to print this material so children can draw on it. Remember that emotions are processed through repetitive play and stories read multiple times. Share COVIBOOK and help ease kiddo’s anxiety all over the world.
