Dear Essential Workers is a thank you note to the heroes and helpers of COVID-19 in the form of a children’s book. While most children are taught that first responders are heroes, COVID-19 has highlighted others who play a pivotal role in our community. The intention of this book is to help educate kids on who those workers are, how they help and the importance of expressing gratitude to them.
