What Kids Did: Stories of Kindness and Invention in the Time of COVID-19
In the spring of 2020, the Covid-19 virus changed the world and made daily life much more challenging. We had to stay apart, away from work, school, and our normal routines. But, all around the world, kids came up with creative and thoughtful ways to help others. From making 3-D printed medical equipment to food bank fundraising to a neighbourhood joke stand, to creating a semi-automatic hand-washing machine, kids made a difference in their communities. In this book for kids 6+, Erin Silver tells some of their stories. $18.95 CAD
