Marvelous Masks is a timely children's book by author/illustrator, Nicole Billick, that makes masks more relatable and less scary for young children. I am so excited to announce that beloved Tucson toy store, Mildred & Dildred and one of Tucson's largest bookstore, Bookman's Midtown, will begin carrying Marvelous Masks this October!
Mildred & Dildred, located at La Encantada mall, is currently offering private shopping hours as well as free (local) delivery (and they ship)! For more information please see: https://www.mildredanddildred.com/.
Bookman's Midtown is located at 3330 E. Speedway Blvd. in Tucson, AZ 85716. For more information, please see: https://bookmans.com/tag/bookmans-midtown/
I am thrilled to announce that Pima County libraries will soon be carrying Marvelous Masks. The title likely will be listed in their catalog by November of 2020. If you would like to see your local library carry Marvelous Masks, please take a moment to recommend the title to your library or contact me (see below).
About Marvelous Masks
Do you know any little ones who are wary of wearing masks because of COVID-19 or know any who are wondering why everyone suddenly seems to be wearing masks? Have you been trying to find a way to make your young children comfortable wearing a mask without feeling strange or anxious? Have an upcoming event or travel where your child will have to wear a mask? Now you can check out Marvelous Masks at your local Tucson library or one of the wonderful Tucson stores noted above!
Marvelous Masks is a timeless, fun and beautifully hand-drawn story that explains how masks have been part of our world for a LONG time -- not just because of the coronavirus pandemic. In this charming story, a group of animal friends looks at all different kinds of masks, and shows just how fun and normal (and important!) wearing masks can be. And all in rhyme! Parents, grandparents and teachers can use this book as a tool to help explain why we all need to wear masks sometimes -- from cowboys, to doctors, baseball catchers, astronauts, chemists...and even superheroes and witches!
Inspired by her own young children, the author hopes that this lighthearted story helps take some of your child's stress out of needing to wear masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Let's make masks less scary and more relatable for young children!
Nicole plans to donate a portion of book proceeds to COVID relief funds. See Nicole's About page for the story behind the story.
