Is Your Child Asking About Coronavirus?

During this period of home learning, your children will be missing their friends and other family members and may be asking questions about the coronavirus that you find difficult to answer in a way that doesn't worry them. 


You may recall having seen them during the first lockdown last year. Under the current circumstances, I thought it a good time to share them once again. So many children are feeling worried and anxious, this could help alleviate some of their fears. Please enjoy reading them together. In addition, the Well Being pack that was sent home last year, which you may like to share with your children, is still available for you to download by clicking HERE.


Digital books that are available for free:

  • Illustrated by the Gruffalo author Alex Scheffler, the book 'Coronavirus - A Book For Children' can be downloaded for free. You can find out more by visiting the Nosy Crow website, and download a copy by clicking HERE.
  • The Children's Commisioner has issued a free 'Children's Coronavirus Guide', which can be found HERE.
  • Explaining Covid-19 to younger children by Clare Shaw, can be found HERE.
  • If your child is having difficulty sleeping, The Good-Night Guide For Children can be downloaded by clicking HERE.


We hope you will find these publications helpful.
