I Drew A Little Monkey Story To Explain Coronavirus To My Kids

Hi, I’m Chris Vosters. I’m an illustrator from Belgium currently in a soft lockdown with my wife, kids, and cats. For these past few days, I’ve been explaining the coronavirus to my children using the Corona monkey as a guide.

The monkey has helped my children understand the many changes we’ve had to make in our daily lives. Maybe he’ll be able to help out some more parents. The metaphor isn’t perfect, but with a bit of creativity, it helps you explain many aspects of what we have to deal with.

But be sure to wash your hands afterward, he’s been known to leave some gifts behind!

As the pandemic unfolds, I’ll be explaining more concepts on my social media pages.

Thanks! I literally came up with the story during dinner, but it really seemed to stick.

This is a pretty good way to explain the corona virus to kids.

Let's just hope no kids want to hang around with the corona-monkey and took it as a pet.
