Luisita and COVID-19 by Dora Przybylek will be displayed at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 23-24, 2022, at the University of Southern California campus, Los Angeles, CA.
This story starts when Luisita first hears about COVID-19 while watching television. She asks her mother a lot of questions like she normally does. Then she learns about the sickness and the precautions that need to be taken to avoid becoming ill. Though she misses going to the park and visiting her friends, she treasures the time she spends with her family at home instead. After that, she pays attention to instructions and waits patiently. Many things changed, but she is content that things are gradually returning to their previous state.
COVID-19 had a great impact on peoples lives around the world. Some businesses went down but others have thrived through the pandemic, making new businesses convenient for the situation. One of the people that COVID-19 has affected the most is children. Kids are supposed to go to school face-to-face to learn how to communicate with others as well as develop a friendly and outgoing personality. The pandemic has caused a lot of heartbreaks but it is important that the people stand up and not give in to the negativity so that they will still prosper in the future. COVID-19 has taught us to adapt to changes, sometimes reinventing ourselves.
This book is a good read and it explains to people that despite the fact that the pandemic has made so many negative impacts on peoples lives, there are also blessings that it has provided. It has been revealed that when people were not able to go out due to the lockdown, they have more time to spend their lives with their families, especially children.
One benefit of having to stay at home is to create bonding moments with loved ones as people learn more about them and themselves.
