15 Picture Books to Help Children Cope in the Coronavirus Pandemic
Scroll down for some wonderful picture books that are great prompts for discussions about the coronavirus pandemic, key workers, lockdowns, social distancing and wearing masks.
Discussing the Coronavirus Pandemic
To get you started here is a free ebook, What is Covid-19 by Alexis Roumanis, that explains the virus in simple terms.
The recommended picture books were created by authors and illustrators to help educators and parents start discussions on the coronavirus pandemic and its effects.
I am sure some of you will recognise some titles, which are not directly related to the pandemic. However, I added these books as they focus on wellbeing and dealing with anxiety.
