Award-winning author Chris Stead releases Superheroes Wear Masks, a children’s picture book that helps kids deal with their COVID anxiety.
There are very few people in the world that haven’t been impacted by COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic. For adults it has been hard going, but at least mature humans have a better chance of understanding what is going on and why safety precautions have been taken. For kids, it’s all just very scary. COVID-19 is much harder to understand.
When award-winning children’s book author Chris Stead was required to get his three kids to wear masks, he found immediate resistance. Masks are uncomfortable. They make it hard to breathe, and they hide the expressions of the bigger adults around them. To help normalise the idea of wearing masks for kids, he created this children’s picture book.
If you’re looking for one of the great wearing masks books for kids that will help kids with social distancing and staying safe, look no further. Superheroes Wear Masks is your best kid’s book for 2021.
What is Superheroes Wear Masks about?
For many children, the sudden arrival of people wearing masks has come as quite a shock. Let alone having to wear a mask themselves! But really, many people your children know – people they may even consider heroes – have always used masks. They wear masks every day for their jobs.
In Superheroes Wear Masks, Chris Stead simplifies the reason why humans wear masks. It empathises with a child’s point of view and shows them, through practical example, why masks help keep humans safe. By the end of the book, kids and wearing masks will no longer be an issue in your house.
Superheroes Wear Masks asks kids to consider the people they know that were wearing masks before COVID. We meet a doctor, a firefighter, a builder, a fruiterer and a chemist on the journey. Kids learn the reasons why these people wear masks, and why wearing a mask during coronavirus is no different. It’s about keeping bad things out of your body. It’s about staying safe.
