              Winner of the 2020 Emory Global Health Institute Competition. Here's a book that provides children honest yet positive information about Coronavirus (Covid-19). COVID-19 HELPERS gives kids the facts of the pandemic, but also offers hope. Mr. Rogers said that when things get scary..., Look for the helpers. Likewise, this story reassures children and parents that many people from all walks of life--including kids themselves--are helping to fight the virus. In COVID-19 HELPERS, Kary Lee's beautiful illustrations and Beth Bacon's clear, comforting words help children understand that though they may feel isolated in these times, they are not alone. In fact, by staying at home during the quarantine, kids are playing an important role in helping to reduce the coronavirus infection rate. This book helps parents, teachers, and librarians discuss many issues of the global pandemic, including: School closures, park closures, theater closures due to quarantine or shelter-in-place policies Social distancing Wearing masks during the pandemic Feelings of helplessness, isolation, and boredom caused by social distancing policies Medical research to end the pandemic Cancelled sporting events, cancelled birthday parties Plus extra pages explaining: Facts about Covid-19 virus What kids can do to avoid getting Covid-19 Even during the global pandemic, communities everywhere have many helpers fighting this new disease, including doctors, nurses, researchers, scientists, farmers, truck drivers, garbage collectors, shopkeepers, postal workers, government leaders, reporters, and even kids living in shelter-in-place quarantines. This book is also available in a Spanish language edition. It was selected by the Emory Global health Institute as the winner of an international competition for a children's book coping about COVID from over 250 entries.
