BOZEMAN — With everything going on, it can be a scary and confusing time for young children, who may not fully understand what is happening.

Child Care Connections thought about this and decided to create stories to explain some of the changes children are seeing, like adults now wearing face masks.

The organization created a story for infants and toddlers and then for preschoolers.

“I think we forget about how this pandemic has impacted children, first of all. We always think about how are people working from home, how are adults handling this, how are people dealing with being out of work. But really, children have been impacted just as much,” explained Tori Sproles with Child Care Connections.

Copies of the stories can be found below:
