Kids and grown-ups have lots of fears, but for many of us, the "unknown" edges out pretty much everything else. When something huge (ahem, a pandemic) happens in a child's life, everything they know is thrown into chaos. Kids (like the rest of us) handle change best if they know what to expect, both on a day-to-day basis and long-term.


What Happens When the Coronavirus Changes EVERYTHING? explains the science of the novel coronavirus, and creates a visual routine that helps them feel safe. Join Mia and her stuffed giraffe Stuart as they explain the basic science of a virus and how social distancing affects a kid's day-to-day life. Using an illustrated calendar to explain how staying home affects a child's daily routine, What Happens When the Coronavirus Changes EVERYTHING? focuses on the child's experience and removes unknowns from the equation.


This book uses bright and fun illustrations to show how the coronavirus affects the body and how we can help stop its spread, in addition to what we can do to make our day-to-day lives easier while staying inside.


"Most of the time we do the same things in the mornings. We wake up. We eat breakfast. (I like apples. Stuart only eats bugs.) . . . When something big changes, what we do each day can change too. Stuart wants to know what happens to our days when we're staying home because of the coronavirus."
By creating a routine that kids can see and understand, parents can restore a sense of safety and predictability in their kids' lives, helping them to be more resilient in the face of life's inevitable challenges. What Happens When the Coronavirus Changes EVERYTHING? is the perfect book for families that want to explain what COVID-19 actually is and how it affects a kid's life. It aims to empower kids with knowledge, which is proven to help kids through traumatic situations.


Aimed at families with kids ages 7 to 10, this method of teaching is based on decades of solid science about how kids learn and cope with the major day-to-day changes that result from life's toughest stuff.
