Charity Tedder, a dental student at University of Plymouth and daughter of a leading virologist, has written an e-book to help children cope with Covid-19.

‘A Message from Corona’, illustrated by talented Kent-based artist, Leighton Noyes, explains vividly and engagingly how the virus has travelled around the world, and why hand-washing, social distancing and lockdown are so vital.

It can be read to children as young as 3-4 or self-read by ages 7-8 and above.

Charity is the daughter of eminent virologist Professor, the Hon, Richard Tedder, who is at the forefront of research into the coronavirus. He has endorsed the book and helped to ensure that all text provided is correct and informative.

The e-book has been passed to Charity’s local member of Parliament in Kent, Adam Holloway MP, and shared with colleagues, in Public Health England, the World Health Organization (WHO), the UK Science Media Centre, The Royal College of Pathologists, The Royal College of Physicians, University of Plymouth and Well Connected.

Here is the link to the GoFundMe page where you can donate towards the book, with all proceeds going to help NHS Charities Together, National Emergencies Trust and Medecins Sans Frontieres, and a direct link to the e-book itself:
