Must-Have Children's Book - The Extraordinary Pause

The last 18 months have been a difficult time for us all but especially children, it can be difficult to explain to them what is going on without worrying them. A lovely book called The Extraordinary Pause has made explaining and looking back and what we have been through, that bit easier.

The beautifully illustrated story is a keepsake testament of the pandemic of 2020-2021 and a tribute to the simple and remarkable efforts people made in the face of the unexpected and unknown. Whether reflecting on what was lost or gained, this book is a wonderful tool for discussing the physical, mental, and emotional impact of this extraordinary event.

The text is complimented with thoughtful and poignant illustrations as well as a few talking points to help kids reflect and remember this experience.
