Mom paints children’s book covers to teach them about the coronavirus


Parents are finding creative ways to keep their kids entertained and educated.

To allow social distancing to make sense for kids and not scare them, this New York mom of two turned book covers into paintings that show how social distancing is maintained and how things have changed.
