Her parents help Alez understand that in many ways the world has changed. Alez’s parents try to explain to their young daughter how some teeny tiny invisible germs have seemingly turned the world upside down. Alez and her parents then embark on an important though fun-filled quest to see what happened to cause the world health crisis, and what their family can do to help keep themselves and others safe in this new world.

Karen Howard lives in Southern Illinois. She has two daughters, a son, and five grandchildren, and has been a nurse for over 35 years. Karen comes from a family of writers, including her brother TJ Howard, and sister, Shirley Roney. Howard was inspired to write “Alez Learns About Germs” as she faced her young grandchildren’s questions amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. These inquiries made her aware of a need to educate curious young children about germs, and how they can affect our daily lives. The author’s hope is that Alez’s story will inspire parents, teachers, and adults to explore creative, fun ways to help children understand how to stay safe and healthy in our world today.
