We are in awe of the way teachers and families have transitioned to remote learning and virtual visits. But we also know it isn’t easy to parent, work and homeschool – with that in mind we have created a book-based, easy-to-navigate resource site to house learning material, activities, podcasts and videos for all ages:
Many of the resource links feature favorite book series, characters and authors—from Kate DiCamillo to Waldo to Judy Moody to the Princess in Black-- that kids will instantly know and recognize as residents on their home and school bookshelves.
You’ll see there is also a free, downloadable, kid-friendly, illustrated e-book about the coronavirus. We are proud to have partnered with our colleagues at Nosy Crow to make this informative and accessible guide widely available. It explains why everyday routines have been disrupted and lays out how everyone can do their part to help.
Please feel free to share the “Stay at Home with Candlewick Press” website in any of your coverage of quarantine resources for families and educators. We would be happy to recommend authors for interview– many of our amazing creators are reading stories online, hosting daily story times on social media, Zooming into classrooms for book studies, and supporting various campaigns to help parents and teachers navigating this challenging time. We hope this site may lead a young reader to a new favorite story or inspire them to create their own.
