"COVID-19 Helpers is a definite must-have and must-read for the people who are struggling during this crisis.
The book is very useful and helpful for parents, teachers, and librarians who seek to discuss the many issues of a global pandemic. Children will be able to understand why school closures, park closures, and theater closures are vital in keeping the community safe and healthy.
The illustrated book also tackles social distancing guidelines and the importance of wearing a face mask or covering during the pandemic. Bacon and Lee also offer insight and a solution to the feeling of helplessness, isolation, and boredom caused by restrictive shelter-in-place policies.
The COVID-19 Helpers covers all bases and features the latest medical research that discusses the steps that people should take to see the end of the pandemic. It also talks about the various sporting events that have been moved or cancelled as well as birthday party celebrations that have been postponed.
The book ends with facts every child and adult should know about the global health threat and what young kids can do to avoid contracting the virus. Best of all, it highlights the efforts communities, medical workers, farmers, shopkeepers, and other front liners everywhere are doing during the coronavirus lockdown." —Danielle Ong, Latin Post
