GOGO and the Stay At Home Bug is written by Kathy Hill. It is a teaching book designed to help children understand the corona virus and what they need to do to help keep from getting it. With the various details and explanations in the book, it is for older children. At the same time, the material is handled in a wonderfully interesting way that these children will enjoy.
Like so many children, during the time when everyone had to stay at home because of the virus, our young characters Gogo and Q are restless and unhappy about being isolated from their friends and school. They’ve been told the reason for this is a "bug" called corona. When the siblings are gathered together inside and trying to find out more about this bug, they suddenly find themselves in the presence of a wonderful and unexpected person who knows all about it.
Their learning unfolds from there in what I consider one of the best and most engaging ways of teaching children about this virus. Gogo and Q are given the kind of encouragement that makes children want to learn, even when the subject being taught is a little tricky to understand. Moreover, the author makes clear the supportive relationship between Gogo and Q, thus showing children the importance of praising one another’s ways of learning. I think GOGO and the Stay At Home Bug is a great teaching tool for parents who want an easy, yet truly informative way to help their children understand the corona virus. Thank you, Kathy Hill, for your story.
