Well-being and mental health

The brilliant Axel Scheffler has produced a book about Covid-19 Coronavirus just for children – and it’s available as a FREE download.
The Gruffalo illustrator worked with consultant Professor Graham Medley, two head teachers and a psychologist to make sure the book got the messages right, answering questions about quarantine, how you can catch the virus and what happens if you get ill.
