Stuck at Home – Life During Coronavirus

Stuck at Home – Life During Coronavirus is a digital storybook, pairing watercolor and ink illustrations with short pieces of text. The project is intended for younger children who might not understand what is going on in the world. The sheer amount of information about COVID is incredibly daunting, even to adults. During my own conversations with younger family members, I have found it difficult to explain the current pandemic. I want to be honest, but I don’t want to scare them. By pairing short, readable captions with colorful illustrations, I aim to provide real and valuable information to a younger audience.
