About the Book
With the coronavirus affecting aspects of everyone’s lives, it’s hard to know what to say to our children. In The Coronaboogaloo, Bella is so confused as to why school is closed and why everyone is wearing masks. “Boohoo, Coronaboogaloo, I'm not sick, what is going on?" she asks.
All she wants to do is return to the way things were and see her friends and teachers.
Bella's mom helps her understand what is going on and gives her a cute way to engage safely with her friends. Bella's story teaches children how to stay safe and create a fun social-distancing dance called the "Coronaboogaloo." Kids are encouraged to use these tips and do the #Coronaboogaloochallenge.
