From a #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator comes a picture book to celebrate and remember the days we spent inside—the joys and the hardships, the bravery and the resilience, but most of all the love.
This book, inspired by kids who found ways to stay connected to the people they love during the pandemic, is about what an imaginative, curious and loving little girl did when her world was turned inside out.
The girl played inside, she learned inside, she waited inside. She talked on the phone to her Nan inside. Her days and nights were all inside, and she would think about what she missed outside--the running, cheering, splashing, hugging, and of course her Nan.
Finally, when the girl could go outside, she was happy to be there--to hug her Nan, see her friends, and even climb a tree. But she had changed inside, and she knew she would always remember the small things and the big things that made that time special.
Here is a picture book that will help young children remember, process, and resolve the feelings they had during the pandemic. Includes prompts to help readers make their own inside story book.
