    Headwaters Relief Organization a Minnesota based nonprofit has created When We All Stayed Home, a coloring book, to support families and children coping with the uncertainties of a world with Coronavirus.

    The book explains COVID-19 to children and their families and helps them identify normal emotional responses and process their feelings about what they are experiencing.

    Headwaters has published eight children’s books. These books were designed to help children in response to disasters in Haiti, the Philippines, West Africa, Nepal, Puerto Rico, as well as a book for refugee children from multiple countries and a book on preventing human trafficking.

    As children engage in the artwork and coloring, the disease COVID-19 is explained in the story. The book also includes tips for adults on communication with children about coronavirus; common questions children may have; skills to teach children to protect themselves; common reactions children have to stress; supportive ideas for adults providing homeschooling and supportive strategies for self-care for those providing homeschooling.

    Headwaters Relief Organization, a nonprofit, has been working in disaster preparedness, relief, and recovery for more than 15 years locally, nationally and internationally. The organization and our volunteers are committed to helping families and communities.
