Some suggestions about what to read in the time of COVID-19.


While virtual activities are wonderful (and we are so excited to have hundreds of options listed on our site), we also love reading to our little ones. Toddlers, preschoolers and young children may not be able to understand why there have been such seismic shifts to their world in recent weeks. There are many age-appropriate books that can help make them feel safe. Here is a list of some of the ones that we love most.
