Grundfos has sponsored a book publishing intended to teach school children ages 5-8 years about the coronavirus.

The rabbit Milton is extra fond of his cozy cave during this time. After all, everyone must stay home most of the time. "There is an infectious virus right now that is affecting many people around the world," he explains in the book "Milton and the Invisible Coronavirus".

The publication is supported by Grundfos funds, and is already being used in the Danish primary school's smallest classes to alleviate concerns and explain the corona situation for children aged 5-8.

According to a press release from the publishers Milton Around The World, Milton’s world will be used as a starting point to create security around the situation that is currently paralysing the entire world population. 

The purpose of the book and its associated teaching material is in an educational and non-frightening way to explain to children what corona is and why we should be careful about hygiene and contact with others.

This is exactly where Milton can help. By creating a single story that targets the 5 to 8-year-olds, the book is able to explain in a fact-based and safe way what the coronavirus is, and how to look out for each other - with rabbit Milton taking centre stage as a fun-loving character.
