Murphy Keeps His Distance is an effective tool to help children understand and cope with the pandemic.
The adorable characters are illustrated perfectly, and children will immediately be drawn to Murphy and the rest of the cast.
Murphy is very sad that he can't spend time with his family and friends, especially his best friend, Daisy.
He misses playing with her and doesn't understand why he can't see her, so he asks his mom why this is happening.
Murphy's mom teaches him about COVID-19, including how to stay safe and healthy. His mom also shows him different options on how to stay in touch with his loved ones and his friends.
Murphy feels much better after learning other ways of interacting with his friends and families and he is excited to share what he has learned with Daisy.
