Explaining COVID to children

31 August 2020

A virus has made Birdie’s friends sick! Birdie feels lonely and worried. What if everyone stays sick forever? But the doctors and nurses are there to help.

Birdie and the virus is part of the Birdie’s Tree storybook series developed by Children’s Health Queensland through the Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health.

Birdie and the virus has been specifically designed to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of babies and young children, their parents and families, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This comforting and informative story can be viewed as a video book, online flipbook and sing-along. All of which are accessible free of charge via the link below. Alternatively you can order a printed copy.
