A Story about Antibodies and Viruses (for Children)
Buddy to the Rescue
By Dr Carolyn Begg
Dear Head Teacher and School Staff,
I hope you don’t mind me contacting you but I wanted to offer you free resources.
I am a lecturer at University of the West of Scotland (UWS) – feeling helpless, it struck me that due to a pet project of mine, I have resources that you might find useful for anyone caring / responsible for young children.
The resources include:
(1) a short picture story for young children, which is a gentle introduction to how our antibodies protect us from invaders such as viruses(attached as a pdf or see link below),
(2) a slightly more action packed animation of my story, which I commissioned (quite a while back) from a newly graduated UWS animation student(see link below).
So during these anxious times, I would be very pleased, if you found any use for these resources. Feel free to distribute or pass on. (to teachers/parents/carers)
Best wishes and thanks to you and your staff working through this very difficult period.
Dr Carolyn Begg
(Lecturer, University of the West of Scotland)
