To help children understand what the coronavirus pandemic is all about, global pump manufacturer Grundfos has partnered with Danish publisher Milton Around The World to develop an illustrated children’s book to teach young readers how to play a part in fighting the illness.
Developed with children aged five to eight years in mind, the story titled ‘Milton and the Invisible Coronavirus’ follows the rabbit Milton, and his two friends, Amanda the butterfly and Conrad the hedgehog, as they navigate the various challenges in their daily lives as a result of the pandemic – from social distancing to ensuring personal hygiene. This book aims to reduce the fear and uncertainty that the children may be experiencing about the COVID-19 pandemic that is difficult to understand, a press release informed.
In Denmark, the book is already being used in primary schools to alleviate concerns and explain the COVID-19 situation to young children, offering a way for teachers and students to discuss some of the questions the pandemic has raised.
The book is available for download on the official website of Grundfos
