More Covid-19 Coloring Books

My little Covid-19 coloring book last month was very well received and was even reported in the CALS eNewsletter on April 17. Other people had similarly been inspired so here is a list of “More Covid-19 Coloring Books” mostly meant for younger readers (but also adults with a kid’s heart.) Some of them have a bigger focus on prevention. As far as I can tell, all of these resources are free to download.
