How did you make this work:
This picture book was inspired by an experience my family and I had during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the unstable situation and limited freedom, many people became anxious, and so was my 2-year-old daughter. This picture book was created to stimulate children's imagination and commemorate a special time.
