2020 has been the worst year of our lives.
For our family, creativity brought us together.
Unable to see each other in person, Papa and Bebe stayed connected to their grandchildren by reading books and telling stories on the iPad. Just like millions of others across the world.
With so much uncertainty about schools and how to keep teachers and students safe, we heard a lot of people saying, "It'll be IMPOSSIBLE to get kids to wear masks."
But what if they DO wear them? What if we could make it FUN? What if we could SPARK their imagination?
That's how this book came about.
Stay safe. Be well. Wear a mask.
