Today, We’re Staying Home

“Today, no daycare or school, Daddy and Mommy are home too.” 

A positive story which highlights the tender moments of a day spent at home and the joy of being together in the present moment.

Why did we imagine this book?

Foster the creation of a new sense of normality for children living within the unprecedented setting of confinement.

Offer parents an opportunity to bring up sensitive subjects such as shared space in the context of remote work, the virtualisation of social rituals and social distancing with loved ones.

Highlighting the tender moments of days that may seem to drag on and remind us that although we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, we can try to focus our attention on today.
