Navigating the “New Normal”

Navigating the “New Normal”

For many kids across the country, camp or a return to daycare will be the first time they’ve encountered the new safety protocols for COVID-19. It also may be the first time they’ve socialized in a group setting, having been social distancing at home for the past few months. Even if parents have decided to keep kids home through the summer, they may be looking towards a return to school in September with apprehension.

The Local Moms Book Club: Eliza Starts a Rumor

The Local Moms Book Club: Eliza Starts a Rumor

We’re thrilled to launch The Local Moms Book Club with Eliza Starts a Rumor! The book revolves around Eliza Hunt, a mom who created the Hudson Valley Ladies’ Bulletin board when her twins were in preschool. Cue the mom forum drama (a la today’s social media groups) and you have a funny story that reveals the power of moms coming together, which we of course love. Katie Couric called it “the perfect summer read” and we have to agree. We spoke to author Jane Rosen, herself a mom of three, about her inspiration, writing career and summer reading list.
