Free children’s Axel Scheffler e-book on coronavirus


Free coronavirus book for children

From the Internet site of British artist Axel Scheffler, illustrator of, eg, the children’s book The Gruffalo:

Coronavirus – a book for children

Written by Elizabeth Jenner, Kate Wilson and Nia Roberts

This is a FREE digital information book for primary school-age children to help explain the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it. It answers lots of questions in a child-friendly way, and aims to both inform and reassure.

Published by Nosy Crow and illustrated by Axel, the text had expert input from Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and also two headteachers and a child psychologist.

You can find out more, download and read the book here.

Axel says:

“I asked myself what I could do as a children’s illustrator to inform, as well as entertain, my readers here and abroad, about the coronavirus. So I was glad when my publisher, Nosy Crow, asked me to illustrate this question-and-answer book. I think it is extremely important for children and families to have access to good and reliable information in this unprecedented crisis, and hope this digital book will reach many children.”
