Happy Harper Thursdays by Fern Schumer Chapman

For my boys this year was a little hard as they had to give up playdates and sleepovers. We also weren’t able to make our trip to Virginia to see family, and our yearly vacation, as well as our long weekend trips, had to be postponed. I am lucky that my boys are 9-16 so they are able to understand the why of everything.

However, if they would have been younger, this book from Fern Schumer Chapman would have been absolutely perfect. This book is written warmly and in a way that kids understand. This is a perfect book to share with kids this holiday season.

Happy Harper Thursdays is available on Amazon.

About Happy Harper Thursdays

A picture book to help children understand why they can’t see their beloved grandparents during the pandemic.

When people who love each other can’t be together, it’s heartbreaking. And when a child is too young to understand a sudden, prolonged cut-off from a beloved relative or friend, everyone hurts. In Happy Harper Thursdays, Fern Schumer Chapman explains to young children, simply and clearly, why we can’t be with the people we love during the Coronavirus.
This colorful, delightfully illustrated book captures how this pandemic disrupts the cherished routine of a grandmother and granddaughter. When the two can see and hear each other only electronically, the confused child wonders why she and her grandmother aren’t really together.

Children often think they are responsible for events that have nothing to do with them. With that in mind, Chapman wrote Happy Harper Thursdays to help her granddaughter– and millions of other children worldwide– understand this difficult separation.

    This sounds like such a good book, perfect for these crazy lockdowns we have been having. My kids miss their grandpa so bad, they cry a lot about it. I feel really bad but also understand the precautions. I will have to get this for them, thank you so much for sharing!
