Comic Teaching Young People About the Coronavirus

Recently NPR published a comic geared to children about the newly discovered coronavirus. The comic was also published in Chinese and has been translated into other languages—and it is finding an audience in schools and libraries as well as at home. The comic is based on a radio story that NPR education reporter Cory Turner did. He asked some experts what young people might want to know about the new coronavirus discovered in China. To make this comic, NPR used his interviews with Tara Powell at University of Illinois School of Social Work, Joy Osofsky at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, and Krystal Lewis at National Institute of Mental Health. NPR is offering, at no charge, a zine version of the comic, which can be printed and then folded; a YouTube video provides directions on how to fold a zine.
