I loved the inspiring and optimistic message throughout Bunk the Chipmunk's Quarantine Story by Victor Teran. I imagine in these trying times, children of all ages will relate to the emotions felt by Bunk. There are many discussion points throughout, enhanced by colorful and vibrant illustrations, encouraging children to look at the quarantine period as an opportunity to try new hobbies and experiences. The suggestion for children to take the trash out as a way to get some fresh air was hilarious and a great idea. The constant reassurance that all will be fine in the future will be a fantastic comfort to young readers with explanations on how you can keep yourself safe with great illustrations on cleanliness. The fun rhyming style of the book is perfect for young children to read along with an adult. The final illustration was a perfect reminder that this is an issue everyone across the world is dealing with.
