Stay Home Resources for Kids | Family
We know that literature, art, music, and activities help create conversation, get our imaginations running wild, lift spirits, and bring people together from all over the world. During this unprecedented time, while children and parents are at home and we’re all practicing social distancing, let’s come together in a safe way, every day.
HARPER KIDS FROM HOME
Join the HarperKids team each day at 12PM (EDT) for story times and read-alouds, activities, fun content, and pure entertainment! We’ll have appearances from your favorite authors and illustrators, our own employees, and special guests, and we’ll be posting suggestions for activities, and more! Follow HarperKids on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube Kids.
