The current pandemic situation and the uncertainty around it is causing a lot of anxiety among us, especially for the kids. It may be difficult for them to decipher why they cannot go to school, meet their friends, or play outside. They will have a lot of questions, and it is important to talk and address their concerns.
Sue Rogers, a former teacher and now a fabulous early years consultant in London, has written three simple yet beautiful stories (free e-books) to help children understand what is going around and to open up about their emotions.
