About the Book

Age Range: 5-7 Years

Publisher: Dorling Kindersley

Price: £6.99


The phrase ‘key worker’ entered our collective vocabularies back at the start of the coronavirus crisis and pupils will probably have enjoyed clapping for them at 8pm on Thursdays.

While they may not have capes, a loveable sidekick or the ability to fly over cities, these are the people who have been keeping us safe over the last few months.

This charming picturebook from prolific author-illustrator Julia Seal features a diverse cast of characters and celebrates the brave, everyday folk who keep our world turning during difficult times.

From doctors and delivery drivers to supermarket staff and – of course – teachers, this rhyming book encourages children to acknowledge and celebrate the role of key workers in our society.

Use it in the classroom to encourage pupils to think about how they too can play a role in keeping themselves and others safe.
