Welcome to Middle-Grade Monday! Are your kids asking questions about the pandemic? Are they asking what the weird word Covid means? Then I've got a book for you! The Case of the Covid Crisis by Pendred Noyce.

The Book-
 If you have a middle-grade reader that loves adventure and is curious about science introduce them to Mae and Clinton and The Case of the Covid Crisis. 
These two are special recruits of the Galactic Academy of Science and they travel through space and time to discover the science and math behind the pandemic. It helps kids understand the current crisis and how it fits in with past epidemics….as well as demonstrating how much you can do even in these very trying times. An empowering and fun adventure for all kids large or small.
