ICYMI: Sesame Street Special Explains COVID-19 to Kids
Parents across America have expressed how challenging living in this pandemic is, especially with kids that don't understand what's going on. It's hard to explain to the little ones and kids are upset that they can't see their friends, family and that they can't leave the house.
The team behind Sesame Street understands, and helped to come up with a way to explain to the kids.
CNN journalists Sanjay Gupta and Erica Hill joined Big Bird to moderate “The ABC’s of COVID-19: A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Parents.” Elmo, Gover, Abby Cadabby, and Rosita were apart of the special as well to explain the effects the pandemic that could be impacting the kids.
Some of the topics discussed include face masks and hand washing, dealing with feelings, how to handle being at home for long periods of time, tips for staying healthy, and more.
