How are small children dealing with the pandemic? Jill Rosensweig is author of the new children’s book (July 2020) Bailey Bloom and the Battle of the Bug.
Bailey Bloom loves to play superheroes with her two best friends, Zoey and Rose. The three girls dream of a day when they can fly through the air, saving princesses in far-off lands. But when the girls learn that Coronavirus is spreading through their town, they quickly realize that they already have what it takes to be real-life superheroes as they help those in need.
A delightful celebration of friendship, kindness, and overcoming adversity, Bailey Bloom and the Battle of the Bug will empower and inspire hope in young readers during the pandemic and beyond. Parents can also use this book as a resource to facilitate discussions with their children about Covid-19, both in terms of what it is and how it is affecting them.
There are several children’s books on the market about Covid-19 but none like this. The book’s broader themes about kindness and being a helper during trying times will transcend the pandemic, but it’s also such a fun read that will help parents open up discussions with their children about Covid-19, both in terms of what it is and how it is affecting them.
A portion of the proceeds from every sale will go to Save the Children, a non-profit organization, which is supporting schools and community programs feed hungry bellies and minds during the pandemic in some of rural America’s poorest communities. Save the Children is also delivering medical supplies and hosting trainings around the globe to help health care workers protect themselves. It works toward preventing further spread of Covid-19 in more than 100 countries.
