Series Insanely awesome
Summary "This pandemic has ushered in a social and emotional crisis for many American children. Your children may be going to school online, at least partially; and you are probably juggling work, their schooling, and coping with the pandemic and the recession. On top of this, American kids are more socially isolated and more dependent on screens than they have ever been. All of this change is taking a toll. This book is designed to address these problems by directly appealing to kids aged 8-11 years old, using uproariously funny and highly-engaging writing and hands-on activities to teach them how to pay attention to their screen use, their mental health, and their social relationships. It's the book parents have been waiting for since this Pandemic began! "Things are a little different and weird these days. Ok - a lot different! School's different. Friends are different. Your parents are different, too. Those scamps are crazier than they ever were before. Chances are you may be feeling a little different yourself. The way life is right now is probably not what you were expecting and likely not what you're used to..." This book works by using a funny, INSANELY AWESOME way to help your kids and your family adapt to the new world we are all living in right now. "Covid Times" won't last forever. Someday, everything will go back to almost how it was. But for right now The Insanely Awesome Pandemic Playbook can help your kids figure out a thing or two. You all get a chance to think about family, friends, screens, and school, with funny, age-appropriate text, jokes, and activities.Written using a humorous and engaging style specifically designed to appeal to kids aged 8-11 years old, this is a great way to learn about ways to improve and maintain mental health during a pandemic. It covers problems using screens; how to stay close to your friends; ways to talk with your family; how to choose fun and safe activities; and ways to minimize any signs of depression or anxiety. A perfect book for pre-teen readers, it encourages reading through humor and games while being educational, based on real research, and informing kids about staying mentally healthy during one of the most challenging times in recent memory.Written by a leading researcher in child development and a literacy scholar with a penchant for zany children's humor, this book has been meticulously illustrated by an amazingly talented 12 year old. Your kids will find it relevant and informative, and they won't be able to put it down." -- (Source of summary not specified)
