An ebook explaining the coronavirus to primary and preschool children in a gentle and positive way with a happy ending and extra resources. Written by a teacher and mother of four, this book will put the coronavirus into context for young children.


The Little Corona King is a children's book aimed at primary and preschool children to help explain to them about the coronavirus in a gentle and positive way.


The book is written by Number 1 bestselling children's author Ellie Jackson, author of the true Wild Tribe Heroes series of books about ocean plastic, palm oil and climate change. Her books are highly acclaimed and have reached over a million children so far and Ellie is used to writing about real global issues without overwhelming or scaring children.


Ellie is a mother of four young children under 10 and has a background as a teacher both of which have given her experience in pitching her books at the right level so as to promote discussion, engage and inspire children to get involved in helping make a difference.


The Little Corona King was born out of a growing global concern for the impact of the coronavirus on all of us as well as understanding that parents and teachers need to explain new ideas to their children in a positive way about how to tackle the virus.


Writing and illustrating the book has taken place over the course of 4 days and is the first children's book in the world that is discussing the coronavirus. It includes relevant, up to date information taken from reliable government websites such as the NHS and the story can be amended as more developments occur.


This book is not a scaremongering tactic nor is it wanting people to panic. It is a tool for parents to use to engage their children with simple health practices such as hand washing, changing routines or habits, reasons why things are different, helping them adjust to school closures or self-isolation if needed etc although some of these are left deliberately vague so as to encourage normality as much as possible.

Amanda's Fall, with charming illustrations by Bijan Samaddar, depicts an event common in schools today. Young Amanda gets a concussion after falling and hitting her head during recess. While she can hear people talking, she cannot respond. Amanda is taken to a doctor for evaluation. Wisely, her parents ask for a prognosis, which in Amanda’s case, is a good one. Author Kelly Darmofal offers readers her third book on TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), encouraging parents and caretakers to alert schools and, hopefully, doctors when any child is concussed; side effects can then be ameliorated. 


Studies show that Traumatic Brain Injuries represent the leading cause of death and disability in young adults in industrialized countries. According to the CDC, at least 564,000 children are seen each year for brain injury in hospital emergency departments and released. 


"Kelly Darmofal worked hard on recovering from severe TBI, and gained the special gift of ability to explain what she went through. This book offers transforming power to children and parents—those afflicted with TBI and those trying to prevent it."

-- Dr. Frank Balch Wood, professor emeritus of neurology-neuropsychology at Wake Forest School of Medicine and ordained Baptist minister


"Amanda's Fall is a delightful, much needed children’s book on Traumatic Brain Injury. Through the eyes of a child, it raises awareness, has tips for coping and offers support for those affected."

-- Christina Condon NP, Neurology


"Amanda's Fall is a lovely book that uses rhyme and colorful illustrations to engage young readers. Kelly Bouldin Darmofal's warm writing style makes it easy to understand the issues surrounding this potentially serious medical condition."

Laurie Zelinger, PhD, RPT-S, board certified psychologist and author of Please Explain Time Out to Me


"This is a cute and creative story to help young children understand their world after a traumatic brain injury. It teaches them that they are not alone in their experiences. The tips for parents are a valuable resource as well.

-- Mary Jane Morgan, Lower School Principal, Calvary Day School


"Darmofal has an ease in the way she writes about TBI. In this sweet story, she makes a difficult situation approachable and something to discuss. This is a wonderful story to share and educate children about TBI."

-- Susie van der Vorst, co-Founder and Director, Camp Spring Creek
