New! Spikeys, Prickles & Prongies : A Coronavirus Discovery Story

When does a simple sneeze become a big deal? What is COVID-19? What is a pandemic? And what can we do about it?

In clear language, science writer and award-winning children’s book author Natasha Vizcarra narrates how Tita Baby catches the virus, quarantines herself, and is vaccinated. By peeling back the science behind Tita Baby’s story, Natasha sensibly explains how viruses spread, how they affect us, and how we can keep each other safe and healthy. Jamie Bauza’s lively illustrations bring the COVID story into vivid focus for parents and youngsters alike. Spikeys, Prickles & Prongies is published by Tahanan Books.
