Book for Children
Please follow this link to a Coronavirus digital booklet, written specifically for primary school age children. It is illustrated by Axel Scheffler, who illustrated beloved children's characters such as The Gruffalo, Stick Man, Zog, the Highway Rat, the Smeds and the Smoos, and many others.
The booklet explains what the virus is, how you catch it, and how you can help control it - as well as why some places are closed and what might happen next - and was written with input from Professor Graham Medley at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, as well as two head teachers and a child psychologist.
