Due to the Covid-19 situation, our children have heard our teachers and parents repeatedly stressing the need to maintain personal hygiene and social responsibility. They also had the opportunity over the past weeks to write, draw and/or record their appreciation to the frontline teams (such as the healthcare professionals). We know that many children would have questions about the current Covid-19 situation, and parents would be wondering how to talk to the children about the Coronavirus.
In My First Skool, we believe that such life situations present invaluable teachable moments for us - teachers, parents and/or grandparents - to talk and learn alongside our young children and help them better understand the Covid-19 situation as well as how they can take preventive actions to take care of themselves and their families and friends.
My First Skool has published this special e-book on COVID-19, titled, “Covid-19, A Child’s Voice” – aimed at allowing our teachers and parents to talk with our children, to share information and understanding of the Covid-19 outbreak, through the medium of storytelling.
This bilingual (English and Mandarin) and illustrated e-book explains to children what the Covid-19 virus is, how it can affect us and how we can protect ourselves from it. This is Edition 1, as we will continue to develop other editions to share updated and accurate information as the Covid-19 situation evolves.
We hope that parents will find this e-book informative and engaging for you to talk with and learn alongside with your young child/children.
Enjoy the read!
