Storytime: Helping Kids Understand Why People are Wearing Masks
During the April 7 edition of Terrific Tales, Wright Library's Karen Mills talks directly to children ages 3, 4, and 5 years old about why they may see neighbors, family members, and others in their community wearing masks.
In the video, Mrs. Mills begins talking about masks at the 53 second mark, answering questions children may have such as:
Is this mask a costume?
Can a person still talk when they have a mask on?
Are people who are wearing the masks scary or bad people?
Will I get sick?
