Connecting During COVID

<p>This collection encourages young children to mail letters and artwork to close family and friends whom they may not be able to see in person due to pandemic health concerns.  Although it's typically easy for most people to connect through email and other types of technology, the personal care and thought that goes into letter-writing, as well as the literacy, communication, and creativity skills it develops, make it a worthwhile and rewarding activity for both the child and the recipient. </p>
