“My Hero is You” is a book written for children around the world affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “My Hero is You” should be read by a parent, caregiver or teacher alongside a child or a small group of children. It is not encouraged for children to read this book independently without the support of a parent, caregiver or teacher.
This book was developed by the Inter-agency Standing Committee Reference Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings (IASC). The project was supported by global, regional, and country based experts as well as parents, caregivers, teachers and children in 104 countries.
Coming soon is a new book “Action for Heros” that will offer support for addressing topics related to COVID-19, helping children manage feelings and emotions, as well as supplementary activities for children to do based on the book.
