Time to Come In, Bear: A Video Children’s Story About Social Distancing

Trying to explain social distancing to little ones during the COVID-19 outbreak can be difficult. That’s why children’s author, Kim St. Lawrence recently released a video story called Time To Come In, Bear. It’s the story of a young bear who needs to come in from playing outside because “the world caught a cold.” The narrator goes on to explain that the little bear “won’t catch its germs if you just stay at home,” and that this won’t last forever, an important element for little kids to hear. It’s simple and sweet and less than two minutes long, making it easy to follow for little ones who need to understand the new way of things.
