AD | I recently received this Children’s Book to review. Written by three Mothers, Donna Claire, Tamar Henry and Eleni Davis. What’s Going On? (asked Belinda Fitz-John) Is a children’s story written to help explain the current circumstances of the Covid19 pandemic and the lockdown we are currently experiencing.
What’s Going On (Asked Belinda Fitz-John)
What’s Going On? is a great story following a young girl, confused about what is currently going on around us with the covid19 pandemic. Why we have to stay inside.
As you can see from the image above taken from What’s Going On? Belinda looks out of her window and cannot see her grandparents or her friends at the park. Something my children have also asked. Why the man she can see wears a mask. This is because of Social-Isolation to protect the nation and keep us all safe.
The story includes inviting illustrations along with friendly rhyming, easy for young children to understand. I must have read this story with pig my 4yr old daughter at least a dozen times. Each time a question she had about the virus has been answered and she is happy. Pig has found this story especially useful with how she relates to Belinda’s character and not being able to attend nursery or see her friends and family.
This story has emphasised the importance of taking care of ourselves. The washing of our hands and making sure that hygeine is important, for example coughing and sneezing into our elbow.
My older daughters Mouse and Titch are at an age where they understand better than Pig and Beast. Thanks to Whats Going On? they understand the virus better and why we must be in lockdown.
