To date, the world has been devastated by one of the worst and deadliest viruses known to mankind, Health officials have recommended children two years of age or older should wear face covering in public to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. Recognizing wearing face covering may not be possible in every situation or for every individual. Children simply want to run, jump, and play. In the free spirit of play, any thoughts of adhering to social distancing rules as our children interact with their friends is almost unachievable during playtime. In Mari Mask On Not Off, Mari expresses her rebellion and her fears to wear her mask in spite of Mom’s constant demands that she wear it. This book looks at wearing face covering from the eyes of a child. This book serves as a great lead in to parents’ discussions as they prepare their children for a safe school year or return from winter break while still under constant threats of a rise in positive cases of the virus, and or influenza while holding to safe precautions in the new COVID environment we now live in.
