C is for Covid-19: The children's books getting us through a pandemic


From Oscar-winning actor Donald Sutherland narrating the new children's book "Rainbows in Windows" that explains the global pandemic, to Dolly Parton reading weekly bedtime stories to give parents a break from home schooling, children's books have become more key than ever in recent months. Comics and cartoons are a powerful way to teach kids about Covid-19 but also help them escape from the real world.


Eve Jackson speaks to Helen Patuck, who's created "My Hero is You"; Carrie Fox and her 10-year-old daughter Sophia from Maryland in the US, who have released their book "Adventures in Kindness"; and the British writer and author of six children's books Philip Womack, whose new book "The Arrow of Apollo" is out now.
