Informed by arts-based research conducted with 3 to 11 year olds during the pandemic, the book highlights the impacts of invisible threats through the eyes of two children, Layla and Arlo.
The importance of sharing worries and working together are introduced for discussion and further exploration. The book is designed to help children, teachers and schools to respond to trauma, and support well-being.
The book is also available as an e-book ‘Learning to Live with Fog Monsters’
