Children's Book Authors Are Offering Free Online Videos While Kids Are Home From School
With school closures taking place around the world, it's no surprise parents are scrambling to keep their little ones occupied at home. Although it's great to have a handful of easy-to-execute indoor activities, kid-friendly movies, and educational websites at hand, it doesn't hurt to change it up a little. Fortunately, children's book authors like Mo Willems (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!) and Dan Gutman (My Weird School: Class Pet Mess!) have opted to share videos centreed on their work that are completely free of charge while kids are home, and frankly, it's music to our ears. Scroll ahead to get a look at some of the clips these authors are sharing — whether they're doling out hands-on creative instruction or simply reading their books aloud.
