Of the book, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said in a statement, ‘all over the world, children’s lives have been completely upended — the majority of them living in countries with some form of restricted movement or lockdown. The book would help children understand and navigate this new landscape and learn how they can take small actions to become the heroes in their own stories.’
The book, aimed at children aged 6 to 11, is now published in six languages with translation in 30 more languages being underway. It is being released as a printable version available online for download, and as an audiobook. Source : CNN
