Coronavirus Resource for Kids, Parents, Teachers: “Storytime with Tea & Amy”

Video thumbnail: Storytime with Tea #1: Rachel Fister's Blister, read by the authorDear Friends,

In response to COVID19, I’m making videos of me reading my children’s books available online for parents and teachers who are looking for ways to keep kids entertained and engaged with books while we’re all stuck indoors.

“Storytime with Tea and Amy” is designed to create a comfortable safe place where young children are encouraged to “share” a cup of tea while snuggling with a stuffed animal friend.

The first three episodes are now on YouTube. Feel free  to share them with:

  • kids needing a respite from the troubling world of the Corona Virus,
  • teachers looking for educational & entertaining online content for distance teaching,
  • or parents simply needing a quick breather of their own when children are cooped up all day at home.

Episode #1 (“Rachel Fister’s Blister”) is available now, as well as  #2 (“Cousin Ruth’s Tooth”), and #3 (“Quentin Fenton Herter III) , and #4 (“Little Beaver and the Echo”).

I hope this might help just a tiny bit to get through this difficult and scary time for kids.

Stay well,

    This is great, Amy! I’m forwarding to my granddaughter and everyone I know who has little kids in their lives. Hope you and yours are safe and well and that your hip is healing. Best, Lisa

    • Delighted to hear this, Lisa. And delighted you have a granddaughter the right age for this. When this craziness is over it would be lovely to Zoom or Skype each other.
