As schools return, these two books from Beyond Words provide an invaluable resource to help children make sense of their experiences during the Coronavirus pandemic, communicate their feelings and prepare for more change as they go back to the classroom.
As the stories are told in pictures alone, it is not necessary for children to be able to read words to enjoy them. This means they are appropriate for pupils in both mainstream and special education settings.
Supporting text at the end of each story gives teaching staff and parents guidance on how to use the stories with children.
Both stories are structured around the 5 Losses and 5 Levers of the Recovery Curriculum – www.recoverycurriculum.org are available to download for free from: www.booksbeyondwords.co.uk/lenny-and-lily-childrens-stories.
