Jamila Rizvi: Why kids have been the little heroes of the pandemic

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Jamila Rizvi is an articulate political commentator, but during the pandemic she found it difficult to explain what was going on to her four-year-old son Rafi. She looked for content that could explore not only what children had lost during the pandemic, but also what could make them feel empowered.

When she found nothing but cartoons of germs she sat down to write a picture book. The result is I’m a Hero Too. Jamila talks about big conversations with little people and why she thinks they are little heroes of this pandemic.
