If you’ve spent any time at all with little kids, you’re probably familiar with the legendary bedtime story “Goodnight Moon.” Well, someone put a coronavirus spin on it and it’s getting published by Penguin Random House this October.
“Good Morning Zoom” takes Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved bedtime book and turns it into a tale about Zoom calls, baking bread, home schooling, and other things that have become part of our lives during the pandemic. It’s written by Lindsay Rechler, a banking exec and mother of two, and she’s donating the proceeds to coronavirus relief charities.
The author came up with the idea for the book because she wanted to find a way to talk to her own kids about what was going on in the world. Rechler was looking for a way to explain why they weren’t going to school, they weren’t seeing family and friends, and Mommy and Daddy were home a lot more. She says she thought using a story they were familiar with would help them get used to their new everyday lives and what was happening outside their home, and “Good Morning Zoom” was born.
