Axel Scheffler has illustrated a digital book for primary school age children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it. Published by Nosy Crow, and written by staff within the company, the book has had expert input: Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine acted as a consultant, and the company also had advice from two head teachers and a child psychologist.

The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds:
• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?

Lucy is like many other children in the world right now: in quarantine with her family.  
Her hair is blue, but this time she knows why.
This FREE eBook is designed to help children realise they're not alone in the current conidtions with Covid-19, to help them understand it's temporary and to help them express how they're feeling. 
We want to ensure that all children know it's "okay, sometimes, to have a blue day."
From our Lucy Family to yours.
Stay home, stay safe.
