The Relentless School Nurse: ‘We’re Going to Be O.K.’

‘We’re Going to Be O.K.’ is a children’s book written by Dr. Ebony Jade Hilton and Dr. Leigh-Ann Webb to encourage children and families to stay “safe, healthy, and optimistic during the COVID19 pandemic.” The book is beautifully illustrated by Ashleigh Corrin Webb. 

I found this special book through an article celebrating Drs. Hilton and Webb’s recognition for “We’re Going to Be O.K,” as one of the top five entries in Emory Global Health Institute’s COVID-19 Children’s eBook Competition. The book was written to address the disproportionate impact COVID19 has had on communities of color. The open-access book is a how-to guide for staying healthy. There are helpful writing prompts and actionable steps to help children cope with stress during this difficult time. 

In an effort to stay in touch with my students, I often narrate books so that they can still hear my voice. I am thrilled to be able to add “We’re Going to Be O.K.” to the collection of video books on my Youtube channel
