Thanks to Karen Partington from the Huntspill Federation for sharing this new book on Coronavirus for children published free from Nosy Crow.

Everyone contributed their time for free - it gives facts and expert medical advice tailored to be appropriate for children.

Alex Scheffler has also been working on a series of drawings showing Julia Donaldson’s favourite characters following the Coronavirus guidelines: they have created the panels as a "light-hearted" way of spreading the message. They feature The Gruffalo, Stickman and The Smeds and The Smoos - all keeping a safe distance from one another. The characters are also seen helping the vulnerable with their shopping.
