Pandemics have swept around the world for centuries, and now Covid-19 is the scary new kid in town, a real bully and a threat to the health, happiness, and livelihoods of people from every nation. Kids need real science information about the virus that has kept them away from school, kept their parents away from work, and may even have harmed or killed people they know and love. And they want information about how to deal with their feelings, too. The pandemic has brought sadness but it's also shown how resilient and adaptable humans are. The Basher mix of science and humor makes these difficult times less frightening by providing approachable and easily understandable information in a format kids know and love.
Basher's distinctive, colorful illustrations and Tom Jackson's lively engaging text will demystify pandemics, while informing kids about the coronavirus that has changed their lives.
Perfect for home or school, Basher's highly original books make difficult concepts tangible and understandable. Chatty first-person text and stylish, contemporary character illustrations give a voice, personality, and story to each topic-a brilliant way to communicate science.
