BOOM! The Book – free book for children and families
The COVID‐19 pandemic and associated lockdowns are impacting all children. For vulnerable groups of children, who already experience poorer health and well‐being, these impacts are amplified. A desire to support children through this pandemic led to a not-for-profit collaboration between a public health doctor, a child psychiatrist, a children’s writer, an illustrator and a graphic designer. To help with emotions, mental health and wellbeing during and post-lockdown, they developed a children’s book to help make sense of this challenging time in all our lives. It’s a beautifully illustrated story of a family whose emotions get them all tied up in knots – and how they manage to work through it together.
