Two new titles have been added to the library of books for children about Coronavirus, presented in Gaelic by Stornoway publishers Acair Ltd.

The short books are centred around characters created by writer Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler and see them taking precautions against coronavirus.

Zog the dragon, Tabby McTat and the Gruffalo – with his child – are all seen taking precautions such as washing their hands, staying at home and wearing face-masks, while home schooling and bringing shopping to older relatives are also featured.

The books were originally published by Macmillan Children's Books UK and Scholastic and follow on from a number of co-editions between Acair and those two publishers.

An Acair spokesperson said that they were also grateful to Mòrag Stewart, Linda MacLeod and Mairi Sine Campbell, who translated the texts, and that they hope children enjoy reading them.
