Birdie and the Virus
A virus has made Birdie's friends sick! Birdie feels lonely and worried. What if everyone stays sick forever? A story for young children about recovering from a virus. Natural disasters like storms, cyclones, floods or fire can be very frightening and upsetting for babies and young children. Playing a therapeutic game or reading a story with a caring adult can help a young child work through the scary experiences and 'big feelings'. There's information for parents and carers too.
