"How My School Fights a Virus"

IFF published this free children’s book — created by our own Rick Raleigh, who works on our Detroit real estate team — as a tool to help normalize COVID safety precautions for children. Written from a child’s perspective, this colorful book weaves together CDC guidelines, the authentic experience of an actual childcare provider, and distinct Detroit cultural markers to help children, families, and child care providers remain safe in learning spaces while continuing to fight for their lives and livelihoods.
