Reading with kids about Covid-19:

"My Hero is You" by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Reference Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings (IASC MHPSS RG) , Scripts and illustrations by Helen Patuck.

A very interesting book and a remarkable collaborative project developed for and by children around the world to help them cope with COVID-19. The project was supported by global, regional and country based experts from Member Agencies, in addition to parents, caregivers, teachers and children in 104 countries.

Feedback from children, parents and caregivers was then used to review and update the story.
