Feel Good on the :50's with Wicker and Wilde - We share stories from around the world that help make you Feel Good.

A group of teenagers in California came up with a business plan in an economics class at the end of their freshman year at Long Beach Poly High School and it will help others and teach kids about the coronavirus. The four students wrote, illustrated and published the “Covid Coloring Book” as a creative way for children to learn about the pandemic and they’re donating part of their proceeds to charity.

Characters in the coloring book like Al E. Gator and Sam the Snail remind readers to wash their hands, be extra careful around their grandparents and to wear a mask. There are also word searches and other educational tools to help kids understand and the book also explains the do’s and don’ts for staying safe.

The teen’s Be The Change Coloring Co also created a second book, “Stand Up For Your-shell-ves,” which focuses on discrimination and social justice. The coloring books are available for preorder on their website.
