Children’s books, reading, and story time are a huge part of our day. But as I’m learning with our social distancing, some variety to our days helps immensely. In other words, my kids often listen better to someone other than me.

While most are reading from their own books or their favorite books, some (like Mo Willems) are also doodling.
