Books Are a Lifeline for Parents
Bella’s family is homeless and has moved multiple times in her first five months. She suﬀers from colic, but her favorite book, Put Me In the Zoo, always brings a smile to her face with its bright colors and pictures. Since they got the book from their home visiting counselor, mom says she’s been able to de-stress knowing Bella’s book calms her wherever they might live.
During COVID-19, books are a lifeline for parents to provide their kids with some stability and comfort. The pandemic has cut off the supply of books to parents and kids who need them more than ever during this critical time.
