TAMPA, Fla. -- St. Jude knows talking to children about the coronavirus pandemic can be hard, so the hospital created resources just for parents.

The hospital has tips online to help you understand what your child already knows, how to find out how they're feeling and how to help them feel safe.


A team at the hospital also created a free coloring book to help kids process the information. It's for ages five to nine and is available in Spanish, English and Arabic.

The books covers how the virus spreads, what's being done to keep kids safe and how to deal with worries.
