“If you’re looking for resources to help you talk with young children about social distancing and the effect of Covid-19, take a look at this charming free online picture book”

“What a delight…An endearing story which picks up elements of the current situation with sensitivity and humour. The illustrations draw you into the story and the mix of rhythm, rhyme, subtle repetition and beautiful language leaves one with a magical feeling of empathy for the bench, for our NHS and key workers and for each other as we come back together in our new normal. A hope-filled and imaginative read. I wish my son was small again!”

Ronnie Reading, Director of Teaching & Learning, Abingdon School

“The story delighted our 800+ preschool followers with its relatable characters and beautiful illustrations. We would like to thank Lucy and Gillian for creating this unique and wonderful story for our little ones during these challenging times.”
