Wade Williams, a 5-year-old from the Atlanta area, wrote a book to help other kids cope with the stress that has come with the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the help of his father, Joshua Williams, Wade published a children's book called, Wade Through the Pandemic.
The goal of Wade's book is to inspire other kids to stay positive despite the impact of the pandemic on their lives.
Dad, I really want to help. I really want to help people.
Williams shared that it all started when Wade had a lot of questions about what was going on, but his most pressing question was how could he help.
The book explains in simple terms what the coronavirus is and illustrates everything that Wade has gone through during the pandemic — from not being able to see his friends or go to school, to his grandmother becoming ill with the virus, and the birth of his baby sister.
Wade's father said that writing the book was his son's way of processing the mental and emotional changes he has experienced during the pandemic.
Williams shared with CNN that the sole purpose of the book was, “Just to let other children know, we know that this is a tough time.”
Wade Through The Pandemic was published on October 2 and it is currently listed at #1 in Children's New Baby Books on Amazon Best Sellers.
