As schools close and parents are forced to self-quarantine, while all spring break travels are cancelled, there is a fun and safe option for families to stay engaged at home. Over the next few days, children’s book author – Sucheta Rawal is offering free virtual storytelling sessions to entertain kids, and give parents a much needed break. In times of uncertainty, it is more imperative than ever to lower anxiety levels among children and families and talk about travel in a positive way. What better way to do so than reading about a traveling cat?
