Letters to Children from Pat Mora

August 4, 2020

Hi Girls and Boys,

This is a strange time in our country, isn’t it? Because of the pandemic, we wear masks even when we’re with our friends. We wash our hands more and practice social distancing. We don’t get too close to people except the family we live with.

Scientists are working to create a vaccine to protect all of us from the Covid virus. Once we have that vaccine, that OUCH, like the OUCH from our flu shot every year, will mean we can enjoy our usual life and run and play without masks.

Bookjoy, Wordjoy by Pat MoraI have been busy with my desert garden, Face-timing with our granddaughter and chatting with family on the phone. I’ve been writing new books and working so that girls and boys all over the country enjoy Children’s Day, Book Day--every day. Do you do that? I read every day.

Next April 30th, Children’s Day, Book Day will be 25 years old. Wow!

How are you going to celebrate at your home, school and library? Maybe, you’ll make your own book.

Your reading friend,

Pat Mora
