This Jewish Mom Created the Perfect Book to Explain Coronavirus to Kids

By Lior Zaltzman
No school and kid blowing his nose

Let's face it, most people are stressed out about the coronavirus outbreak. Now, with schools shuttered across the country, we now have the added pressure of entertaining and/or educating our kids 24/7.

But that’s not all: We also need to figure out a way to explain this unprecedented situation to our children in an age-appropriate way.

Fortunately, one Jewish mom created an amazing resource that does just that. My School is Closed is a great little PDF book created by Meredith Polsky, a co-founder of Matan, a Jewish organization that helps make Jewish education and community life more inclusive for children with disabilities.
