Alex and the Monsters: Together at Home! Coronavirus Days
Jaume Copons, Salvador Macip, Tony Hernandez, Elena Rottier
Hi! My name is Alex Pianola. Since the coronavirus lockdown began, I’ve been stuck at home with ten monsters and my parents. Gradually, I’ve realized that everyone else is in the same situation and we all I have to learn to do everyday things differently. I am eager to go outside, but thanks to the monsters and my friend Lidia, I’ve learned more about the virus and the whole point of the lockdown. We have to be responsible. We have to support our healthcare system, research and science, but we also need to take care of the planet and of each other, because we are all in the same boat. This special digital edition guide helps young readers learn to live with the coronavirus and play their part in stopping it from spreading. It encourages children to calmly reflect on what they are experiencing and teaches them how to cope with the anxiety that changes in routine can create. The information about COVID-19 is presented in a kid-friendly format and is easy to understand. Great care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the scientific facts presented, thanks to the input of specialists such as Salvador Macip (doctor, scientist and writer), Toni Hernández (physicist, linguist and teacher) and Elena Rottier (psychologist). Together we will defeat the virus and there will be more Alex and the Monsters adventures!
