FEARS: HOW TO FACE AND OVERCOME THEM

We’re walking through difficult and exceptional circumstances: the entire world is on high alert, everyone had to adapt to new life conditions since COVID19 started to spread. Our lives have really changed completely. But…

How did the COVID19 spread?

What are the symptoms of the disease and how to face it?

Who is most at risk for the coronavirus disease and what should we do to avoid something similar happening again?

This book can respond to these questions, raise awareness in the little ones about the crisis we are all living. 

The virus becomes here an enemy – ugly and colourful – with an angry face and armed to the teeth.

Vibrantly poetic illustrations accompany this book, which is dedicated to the youngest and their parents helping them to face fears: fear in fairy tales, fear of the dark and fear of nightmares, fear of flying the nest storms, fears to be in hospital or fear of not being liked and accepted.
