What does it feel like to be safe? How can teachers, librarians, and others who work with kids help them to feel more secure?
What about using a safety pin as inspiration for children in schools throughout the country?
Author and illustrator Jarrett J Krosoczka based this safety pin idea on a Mo Willems drawing.
He posted his suggestion on Twitter and almost immediately the responses came flying in. These generous, caring, and very creative authors and illustrators have produced messages of hope for young people everywhere.
Thank your Jarrett. Thank you KidLit community for your open hearts. Monday morning promises to be more hopeful for kids everywhere.
