Meet the author of the runaway hit children’s book, Good Morning Zoom! Learn firsthand how the book came about and enjoy hearing the book read aloud by author Lindsay Rechler herself.
About the Author:
Lindsay Rechler is a mother to two young children, Jack and Kenzie. She lives in Manhattan and is a Managing Director at a global investment bank. Like all parents, within the last few months, she and her husband Zack have also become chefs, bakers, coaches, teachers, musical directors, sanitizers, authors and artists.
Good Morning Zoom was written for today’s children and for future generations to record the impact the pandemic had on our lives and how we weathered the storm together.
About the book:
Good Morning Zoom is a story based on the classic children’s poetry of Goodnight Moon. This modern twist expresses the emotions young children might be feeling during the global pandemic. Their reality has become isolating with their parents, many of whom are still working from home, and seeing friends and loved ones only through the barrier of a screen. This lyrical portrayal of life during the Coronavirus gives voice and hope to our youngest who are replacing school and hugs with technology.
