Two years ago I walked out of my 2nd grade classroom on a Thursday in March.
Two years ago we prepped for a month-long "spring break."
Two years ago we tried to flatten the curve.
Two years ago we haphazardly tossed toilet paper and soup into a shopping carts.
Two years ago we didn't know anything about sourdough or how to unmute ourselves.
Two years ago we had no idea.
A lot has changed in two years. A lot has changed in the world and a lot has changed in my own life. We've all had to make pivots, sacrifices, and we were given a whole lot to think about (and a whole lot of time to do it).
Luckily, all of those feelings and all of that time resulted in some pretty great picture books about our collective experience. Right now we might be feeling like it's time to move on, but I'm glad we have books like these to preserve this moment in time in case our lives ever become precedented again.
