We’ll be together again by Lucy Menzies review

This book, about a family handling separation that results from the COVID-19 pandemic, is split into two stories within. One follows a girl in the city and the other follows her grandfather in the snowy mountains. The book opens from the middle and the story and illustrations go across the page. A little girl adores her grandfather and cannot understand why she cannot see him. Her family talks to her about the pandemic, and they decide on different ways they can still see grandpa even if they cannot touch him. By the end of the story, the pandemic is safer and the little girl is excited to hug her grandfather. This is a wonderful way to help a child understand the pandemic. There are many families that can relate to the little girl and her frustration and sadness over not being able to see her grandfather. This pandemic is confusing for children and having a book they can relate to can help them to understand and also learn.
