East Riding Libraries are offering free access to a new book for primary school children about the coronavirus and its effects and impacts.
Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo and many other books, has illustrated the digital book, 'Coronavirus : a book for children', which is free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it.
The book has had expert input: Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine acted as a consultant, and advice from two head teachers and a child psychologist.
The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for five to nine year olds:
The book is offered totally free of charge to anyone who wants to read it. However, the publishers have suggested, at the back of the book, that families might make a donation to help the NHS if they find the book useful: www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk
