Guest Review: And The People Stayed Home by Kitty O’Meara.

And the People Stayed Home by Kitty O’Meara, illustrated by Stefano Di Christofaro and Paul Pereda. Tra Publishing, 2020. 9781734761788. 32pp.

This picture book started out as a poem about the COVID pandemic. O’Meara’s words quickly drew acclaim and praise by dignitaries, world leaders, politicians and celebrities. It’s obvious why so many people – adults and children- are reading and enjoying this story about the positivity of people staying home during the crisis. Rather being isolated and lonely, we can share time together reading, playing games, learning and refining skills, and even just resting.┬áNow is the time for everyone to just be still and quiet.
