Leading with Mr. Rogers’ advice to ‘look for the helpers’ when things feel scary, this book in the Pandemics and COVID-19 series (6 titles) adopts a friendly, comforting tone as it introduces essential workers striving to keep everyone safe and healthy during the current pandemic. Among them are bus drivers, train conductors, garbage-truck crews, and firefighters. With crisp photos and short paragraphs surrounded by ample white space, the text describes why these jobs are important and how wearing masks, gloves, and other protective clothing helps stop the spread of germs. The following chapters present helpers in the food industry, including grocery and farm workers, delivery persons, and healthcare professionals. COVID-19 fact boxes appear throughout and concluding suggestions offer safety precautions readers can take to help stop the spread of COVID-19 themselves.
