Back Cover:
One day, everything normal packed up and left town. Where did normal go? Why did normal leave? When will normal return? If the playground is closed, can we turn the stairs into a slide?

The past year has been a strange and difficult time for our kids. Their lives were suddenly flipped upside-down by COVID-19, a situation that is tricky to explain and has no clear ending.

Hello, Normal. Where Have You Been? explores the realities and oddities that the pandemic has created for children—the frustrations experienced, the joys of new fun created, and the optimism that our lives will (one day) return to normal.
