A Book About the Pandemic

by Dr. Ida Acuña-Garza

About The Book

From the Windowpane is a book about a little girl named Alyssa. She is experiencing many feelings during the lockdown due to the Covid 19 pandemic. She looks out the window and reflects on everything that is happening and the new rules in place – washing your hands, social distancing, and wearing masks. She’s also missing her school classes and her friends. As she looks outside through the windowpane, she sees a tree and thinks about the freedom the tree feels wishing in a way that she was the tree. The book then reflects on the positive lessons we have all learned from the changes the pandemic brought to our lives.
