A new story book that aims to help children understand and come to terms with COVID-19 has been produced by a collaboration of more than 50 organizations working in the humanitarian sector, including the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Save the Children.
With the help of a fantasy creature, Ario, “My Hero is You, How kids can fight COVID-19!” explains how children can protect themselves, their families and friends from coronavirus and how to manage difficult emotions when confronted with a new and rapidly changing reality.
While the book is aimed primarily at children aged 6-11 years old, read it anyway, even if you do not have children. We are all on an emotional rollercoaster during this time of uncertainty. The illustrations are beautiful and the story offers excellent coping ideas no matter your age.
How are YOU being a HERO in this difficult time.
