Putting the serious health issues of this crisis aside for a moment and not diminishing these uniquely challenging circumstances, most of us are having to cope with the significant shift in our lives. We don't know how long we will be living in a "stay at home" world, and we have no idea when it will change again and what that will be like. Patricia, one of our team members, recommended this video clip version of the story of Who Moved My Cheese. When the book came out, we bought copies for our team, and if you haven't read it, you should. If you did read it, perhaps it's time to read again. For those that may prefer the 10 minute video clip of the story, see below.
For as long as schools are closed, we're open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.
