St. Jude Creates Coloring Book to Teach Children About Coronavirus

St. Jude has released a free “Learn About the Coronavirus,” a coloring book to help the hospital’s patients and children in general understand the virus and its associated health problems.

The coloring book provides basic instruction (“Did you know that when you wash your hands germs like coronavirus go away?”) and bits of information (“Coronavirus is a big word, but did you know that ‘corona’ means crown? When you look at coronavirus under a microscope, a part of the virus looks like a crown”).

The book is aimed at ages 5-9 and available for anyone to download.

The coloring book is “a resource we produced for everyone,” said Marvin Stockwell, St. Jude director of media relations. It can be downloaded for print-out through the St. Jude “Together” website at
