Title: “A Coronavirus Christmas” 

Author: Shannon Jett 

Illustrator: Davor Ratkovis 

Reviewer: Sarah Laughmiller 


This book is good for young children. It is easy for kids to understand: We are all in this together.  

This book reminds us we are not alone, and it gives some wonderful ideas about how to still have that Christmas joy and share it with those who are near and far.  

Little ones in this delightfullyillustrated book haven’t lost that Christmas sparkle in their eyes.  

Santa and his elves are still just as hard at work as ever. They’re taking all the necessary precautions to bring toys, goodies and cheer to little boys and girls everywhere. The reindeer can’t get sick, so they are ready to help Santa deliver gifts all throughout the COVID world.
