Well-known authors and illustrators help pupils understand coronavirus

Publishers and well-known authors/illustrators have created a range of e-books to download and share with children. Nosy Crow has published “Coronavirus. A book for Children” by Elizabeth Jenner, Kate Wilson and Nia Roberts. Professor Graham Medley, Professor of Infectious Disease Modelling at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine worked as a Consultant on the book. The illustrations have been provided by well-known illustrator Axel Scheffler. The e-book is suitable for primary age children and can be downloaded from the Nosy Crow blog or from Axel Scheffler’s website

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have worked together on some cartoons for children in EY/KS1, featuring well-known characters from their books, updated with new rhymes, to encourage the youngest readers to stay home, wash their hands and practice social distancing. You can see the cartoons on The Guardian website. Colouring pages of more Axel Scheffler’s illustrations, can be found here.

Shannon Hale and Dean Hale, creators of the “Princess in Black” series of books have created The Princess in Black and the Case of the Coronavirus , an accessible comic book for younger readers which gives tips on how to fight the coronavirus, explains why washing hands is important and outlines why staying home and keeping your distance is essential.

Sally Nicholls, Viviane Schwarz and Andersen Press have produced: Staying Home, a free e-book for EY/KS1 about a family of raccoons and how they spend a day in “lockdown”. Download it from the Andersen Press.

A note from Mrs Wilkinson.

I am aware quite a few of our pupils buy and read their own books at home but are not sure if they are Accelerated Reader books, so here is a list of books that I know most of you have spoken with me about that you are reading at home.

The books listed below are Accelerated Reader books and you will be able to test on them. Please do not test on any book you haven’t read till the end as this will effect your word count if you don’t get it correct.

Please remember if the book has 5 questions you need 3 or more for a pass.

                                                           10 questions you need 6 or more for a pass.

                                                           20 questions you need 14 or more as a pass.
