The Bayside Bunch Breathing is Believing
On one spring day, Principal Jones scheduled a town hall meeting with parents and children of P.S. 411 Elementary. They were not prepared for the principal’s speech to the school community. Why has Principal Jones scheduled a town hall meeting? What will the virtual town hall meeting tell us? Will the children continue with remote learning? Will the children see their friends soon? The answer may not be what you expect!

“The Bayside Bunch Children's Book Series, specifically Quarantined in Queens, offers a relatable telling of the Covid-19 pandemic from the perspectives of young school-aged children. The story offers information and hope for all readers but most importantly creates representation for the young reader in order to process their experiences during the pandemic. We are very thankful to have this title in our collection and I personally recommend it to any parent or young person interested in titles related to Covid-19.”
“This book was very entertaining. It keeps the children's attention with the storyline and rhyming. The illustrations are vibrant. I think this will be a "go to" book for quite some time in my kindergarten homeschool class. It is also written well enough for my third grader to practice reading to himself and the kindergartners.”
“The excitement as to what Selwyn would find when he went to the principal’s office. I recommend it to children and adults.”
“I anxiously read the book with excitement and anticipation as to what the Bay side kids would do next. I was left with more knowledge on breathing as well as the history lesson. I feel very rich from today's bountiful treasure. Thank you, Dr. Robinson.”
“I ADORE this book! As soon as I got my hands on The Bayside Bunch - Go See The Principal! I knew it needed to be shared! Soon to be featured on Barb’s Book Buddies (YouTube), the message is important and appropriate for MANY grade levels.”
