How do you explain a big pandemic to a little mind? Simple. You break it down for them by having familiar faces and daily life episodes come into the picture. That's exactly what Pratham Books's timely e-book, The Novel Coronavirus: We Can Stay Safe, does by reintroducing them to some of the publishing house's popular characters from previous titles, as they throw light on the virus and share valuable advice in a non-preachy way. From a wise grandmother's (Ammachi) comforting advice, to a young girl fighting the virus (Uma) singing Happy birthday and a lonely kid (Bhaiya) feeling safe under the lockdown, the easy-going play with words will engage children. The endearing characters are bound to strike a chord with the reader. The vibrant palette does the rest to retain their interest throughout this little gem.
