Alone Together: A Tale of Friendship and Hope

Cover: 'Alone Together: A Tale of Friendship and Hope '

Staff Review: "Alone Together: A Tale of Friendship and Hope " by Julia Seal


In this timely picture book, two young children face the initial challenges and loneliness of quarantine that people all over the world have experienced this past year. Once the children realize they can still communicate, just in a fun new way, they don't feel so alone.

I found this heartwarming and hopeful picture book to be a great resource and talking point for parents and caregivers during this pandemic. My other favorites on this topic (which I have to say, I loved even more than this one) are: Outside, Inside by Leuyen Pham, and And the People Stayed Home by Kitty O'Meara.  

Audience: adults, children | Genre: picture book
