My Review

We have read and reviewed a few of this authors children books and they have all been a huge hit in this household!

I think that this is the perfect book to have at home or in a school or nursery to help parents and teachers alike open the narrative around Coronavirus in a safe, informative and interesting light.

May young children are overwhelmed in this strange and difficult time and us parents have few answers as this is the first time may of these events have ever happened, this story helps deliver the message of symptoms and keeping each other safe in a way that young children can relate too.

lovely rhyming words with some engaging and colourful illustrations which make the book that more exciting.

A must buy for any household or learning setting or it would make the perfect gift.
