This is an unusual and worrisome time for a lot of parents, including us at Little Fun Club. As parents, we have moments of getting to escape the realities of the world by magically disappearing into the story of a good book with our kids. And though we have plenty to choose from, it doesn’t prevent us from being jolted back into reality once the reading has stopped. Responsibilities and worries take over the moods of everyone involved on this unplanned journey.
We are as equally unprepared as we think we are prepared – from state and federal government to schools and hospitals. With all the emergency drills our children successfully practice in school it’s amazing how we didn’t foresee a situation where teaching outside of the classroom and school grounds would need to be possible! That said, we are in awe of all educators who are adapting and teaching classes virtually.
This emergency has everyone scrambling from new policies and orders in place that raise more questions than answers to remote work and school that change our lives as we know it, to orders to shelter in place, to close businesses that quickly incapacitate a community. In the midst of all of this, here are our kids: At home and trying to make sense of what’s going on around them.
We think we can all agree that it is an unusual time and we want to extend a big bear hug to all of you and let you know that we are here for you! We will do everything we can to maintain some level of stability and sanity to your regularly scheduled subscription deliveries to your door!
Our response to COVID-19
We have closed our small bookstore to the public. We are sanitizing surfaces in our office according to CDC guidelines and all Little Fun Club Team members are implementing “social distancing” practices to be extra safe. Everyone who can do their job remotely is working from home (we do have a strong IT team that made this possible).
Our shipping team is operational and are shipping boxes as scheduled, making sure every subscriber has new and exciting and adventurous books to read during these unusual times.
Unless CA goes on enforced lockdown your next box will ship on its scheduled date. We are available to answer any questions or listen to you vent or simply say hi back over chat, email, phone call or social media!
And read more with your kids!
