School in the Time of the CoronavirusAges 5 - 6, Ages 6 - 7, Ages 7 - 8
School is starting and the coronavirus is still in the community. Maria, an elementary school student, is worried about what it will be like to go back to school after staying at home for so long. As the first day of school approaches, Maria and her mom discuss the parts of school that will be the same and also new rules that were created to keep kids safe. They also talk about how Maria is feeling, what she is thinking, and what she can do during this time of transition.
School in the Time of the Coronavirus is a must-read children’s book for all elementary school kids, their parents and teachers preparing for the return to school in the fall of 2020. Written by Emily Mazzulla, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, expert in the field of trauma and resilience, and mother of three, this beautifully illustrated book gives children, parents and teachers a relatable format to talk about the transition back to school. A useful reference for building resilience in children is provided at the end of the story to support adults with this transition too!
