The book has now been adapted into a short animated film which aims to “convey messages of hope, resilience, solidarity and empowerment to children and their caregivers around the world”. The team, led by Stanford Medicine’s Maya Adam, had input from the IASC as well as UNICEF and the WHO and included advisors from Stanford Medicine, the Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health, and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley School of Medicine. Animations were done by Chaz Bottoms, Matt Torode and Monica A. Young.
