How is everyone doing with those who are quarantined, sheltering at home, essential workers, and beyond? For those who don't know, I have two little boys who are home full time now and I have had to put on a few new hats: teacher, counselor, school nurse, etc. and we are managing. I think one of the best things I have found to help with long days is #OperationStorytime There are countless videos being added on social media with folks reading books they've written, a favorite book, a classic book, and more. 1031 even jumped in and posted this gem to help parents and caregivers who need a different voice reading for a few minutes.

While home with my kiddos I also loved finding activities and crafts to do at home. Since the idea of a million scraps of paper all over my kitchen floor made me break out in hives, I was happy to see the #ColoringPages trending on social media as well! As a mom and educator I love finding new activities that link positive messages and lessons with fun crafts. I was ecstatic when the illustrator for The Magic of Making Friends offered to create free coloring pages to download, print, and color. We LOVE seeing your creations and ask that you tag @1031PublishingLane and include the #MagicofReading so we can see all your colorful creations.
Stay home, stay safe!
