It was a beautiful day and Snowy loved the sun. She was running in her backyard and saw her friend Zoey fluttering by. They loved playing with each other and Zoey told Snowy how a new virus called Corona had changed the world. She was curious to know how it had changed the world and they decided to go to the river and ask their friend Chloe the duck if she knew about it. On their way, they saw a black cat lying on the grass who told them how her family never goes out anymore and that is how the world has changed. They reached the river and saw Chloe splashing in the river, which was crystal clear. Chloe thought the water in the river being pure and clean was the change that happened in the world. Their friend Joey thought there was no pollution and it was easy to fly and that is how he thought the world had changed. Everyone they met had a different reason to say why they thought the world had changed.
Snowy and Zoey In A New World by Hilda Youssef is a lovely story that shows young readers how polluted the world was and how it all changed when Corona happened. It is also a good way to help children understand the strange times we are living in. The illustrations are as adorable as the characters and the plot and will make the story palpable to children. It is a good book to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries so children will understand how the earth healed and became a better place during the pandemic. Parents can gift it to their children during special occasions and the festive season and they also learn the names of animals through the story.
