Pandemic by Jackie French is a timely book about the 1920's Spanish flu and Jackie’s Grandmother’s acts of kindness during that time. With illustrations by Bruce Whatley, during 2 weeks in hotel isolation to prevent the spread of Coronavirus-19, this is a beautiful way to teach children that this is not
