About the Book

Jared Jackson, known as JJ, was a happy third grader when the world changed for everyone due to COVID-19. Now, he has spent the last year and a half learning remotely while trying to control his new normal.

It’s finally time to go back to school, but JJ is afraid of how things have changed. Now a fourth grader, JJ worries that he is not prepared for in-person class. What will it be like to be face to face with teachers again? Will he still be close with all his friends?

COVID brought uncomfortable change to so many young students. This book acknowledges that the return to school might be difficult or at least take some getting used to, while inducing anxiety. However, it is possible for kids to deal with their current situation with competency, responsibility, and calm by working together.
