Explaining Social Distancing to Kids

This sweet story about social distancing features a bear and a bunny who have to come in while the “world has a cold.” If you have a young child who misses playing with friends or visiting their grandparents, this sweet, comforting story is for you! 

“Time To Come Home Bear” in ASL

We have taken children’s author Kim St. Lawrence’s original video and added American Sign Language interpretation so you can sign the story with your deaf or hard of hearing child. Special thanks to Jincy Roberson for her beautiful ASL retelling of this story, and to ASDC board member Heidi Corce for making this video possible.
