Booklist - 05/15/2020 Being informed is one of the best steps a person can take toward staying safe and healthy, and this guide to COVID-19 helps young children understand the nature of the coronavirus and viruses in general. The book sets a friendly tone with its cartoonlike illustrations and approachable writing. For instance, a drawing of a prickly, purple sphere comes with the note that “Viruses look like this, but a GAZILLION times smaller!” COVID-19 is then placed within the context of other viruses kids will be familiar with—colds, flu, chicken pox—and the text clearly explains common ways viruses are spread. Next comes a section on how COVID-19 can make you feel and how to protect yourself against it. Using tissues, wearing a mask, cleaning surfaces that people frequently touch, and washing your hands (illustrated chart included!) are all tips given and explained in child-friendly language. The disruption of routines and rationale behind social distancing are also addressed, thus helping kids understand the how and why behind the coronavirus. A practical, comforting guide for youngsters—highly recommended. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
