From the Back Cover

COVID-19 Helpers offers a factual, yet hopeful, explanation of the global coronavirus pandemic. This story reassures children that many people, including kids, are helping to fight the virus that spread through the world in 2020. Beautiful, colorful illustrations by Kary Lee and clear, comforting words by Beth Bacon help children understand who stay at home during the quarantine play an important role in helping to reduce the coronavirus infection rate. 

About the Author

Kary Lee As a kid, if Kary Lee wasn't in her backyard painting or tapping at the typewriter, she was most likely directing (bossing around) the neighborhood kids in one of her screenplays. After college, she landed a job as an art director because she liked the bossy part. She took a painting class and won a book illustration award. Five books and a Mom's Choice award later, she's never looked back. Kary lives in Seattle with her husband Charles and a backyard bunny. VISIT HER WEB SITE at karyleestudios.com/
Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) brings together diverse disciplines to tackle global health issues. In 2020, Covid-19 began spreading around the United States. Inspired by his grandchildrens' questions about the pandemic, Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, the Director of EGHI and Vice President for Global Health at Emory University, believed children's books could provide answers. So EGHI held an ebook competition. 260 stories were submitted. Covid-19 Helpers 
is the winning book. VISIT THE WEBSITE AT globalhealth.emory.edu/
