THE CORONAVIRUS KIDS by Olive Jamieson

"Has anyone ever heard of coronavirus? Yes, I know that everyone has heard of it. It's a global pandemic that wiped out a small quarter of the earth. It is extreme. I know it's extreme. Very extreme. Supercalifragilisticeexpialidocious extreme.

None of this was planned and we can't tell what's going to happen in the future. This is a kind of zombie apocalypse."


That is not me writing about coronavirus. That is a 9 year old girl from Twickenham, London who has written about the struggles facing children during the pandemic.


Olive Jamieson began her book in the first lockdown in March 2020, as a diary. “I was frustrated, because I felt like people didn’t understand what it was like for children during the coronavirus pandemic."


"Sadness can be caused by different things. My sadness in this book was caused by lockdown, by not seeing my family, my friends, not going outside enough. Not going to school. This is a story of a virus, a virus filled with sadness."


Olive is a normal child with a normal life. But one day this all changes when Olive realises that her world is about to change. By buying Olive's book you will be supporting Ellas - which is a charity for women who have survived trafficking and sexual exploitation and you will get the chance to read what a child's thoughts were during lockdown.
