Corona Virus: A curious guide for courageous kids is the first bilingual (Arabic/English) free guide produced by Pleiadi and the network of Italian Children’s Museums in collaboration with Art Jameel to encourage responsibility, curiosity, creativity and positivity in the younger generations, in light of the current challenges faced with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The unique guide is written by scientists, illustrated by artists and designed by museum educators to provide children and young readers relatable and clearly communicated facts about the virus. The e-book acts as an essential tool that enables parents, guardians and teachers to communicate calmly and effectively the measures taken in cities around the world. With its creative illustrations and friendly language, the guide successfully highlights precautionary steps children can take to stay healthy plus values of cooperation, unity and community building.

The project was first started by Italian science association Pleiadi and then endorsed and promoted by the Network of Museums for Italian Children. The guide is currently being translated into 30 languages and distributed to 50 countries.

The guide is free and available for download below for readers across the Arab world and beyond, to be viewed on computers, I-pads, tablets, phones and, wherever possible or required, as a print resource.

A story-time version of the book, with accompanying English and Arabic audio, will be added shortly.
