How to Connect with Your Grandchildren During a Pandemic acts as a kind of scrapbook of the ways in which one grandmother found creative ways to stay in touch with her beloved grandchildren as the world went under quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. From Zoom call games of hide-and-go-seek to at-home wrestling practice between brothers, Grandma and her entire family managed to stay connected as ever, though miles apart, and their memories are chronicled here in this book.
