The world needs heroes now. Those heroes might feel sad, scared, or frustrated. But together, we are stronger than a virus.
Even Heroes Feel Sad: Fighting Coronavirus Together (written by Kate Allen Fox, illustrated by Laurie Smollett Kutscera) is a scientifically-accurate and comforting read for children ages 6—9. Fox—a former public health professional at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—ensured that the book was aligned with the latest science and recommendations related to COVID-19.
Laurie Smollett Kutscera’s pastel pencil illustrations add emotional depth and magic to the story’s text. Kutscera is also a writer, whose debut middle-grade novel, Misadventures of a Magician’s Son, was published by Clearfork/Blue Whale Press in April 2020. It is available here.
