Sinnott Elementary School teacher Adrienne Barber authored her first children’s book, titled “School Coronavirus Do’s & Don’ts,” over the summer.
“Inspired by her incredible, funny, and hard-working students,” Barber’s goal was to “write a book that brought some comfort and humor to students everywhere.” Barber, a first and second grade public school teacher for the last 20 years, wrote and illustrated the entire book.
“It's an informative and silly guide to help children with the changes in schools, whether they attend online or in person,” Barber explained. “I published this week, and it's already been seen in several countries. The best part is that it's making some kids laugh.”
The book, which can be found on Amazon, has already been translated in Mandarin, Spanish, Italian, and Hindi, with Vietnamese and Korean on the way.
“I will create a multi-language version as well,” she added. “My friends, as well as some students from the past and their families, have all joined in to help with translations. It's been pretty incredible.”
Barber also has her own website with free resources for families.
