Great read4 star

I was browsing and saw this book. It was free so I downloaded it. It is a good book but it could have added more attentive details like covering a sneeze or wearing a mask in public, ergo I recommend this for parents who need to explain the situation to their kids.👍🏽45


Good but...4 star

I think, overall it is very informative and good for children but could be easier for 6-7 year olds who cannot read the bigger words.45


Expected Better3 star

Where are the masks on the characters? You show people interacting- grocery clerk, delivery person, and others without masks. Too bad because some of the rest is good explanation for young children.35


Great pictures for sparking conversations with my toddler5 star

I have a 3yo so his short attention span meant we didn’t read through the long text. But I used the illustrations as a springboard for explaining why we can’t go home yet and in the meantime have to shelter in place with grandma (we’re on week 9). We were able to have a really good conversation about being sad and angry and worried, and why we have to wash our hands so many times a day... all in all this was an excellent tool for simplifying and explaining complex concepts to my toddler. Thanks for the free and excellent resource! - aurora, working mom of 3yo and 1yo55
