Our heroes of COVID-19

"Joel and his grandpa love spending time together. Then, the Covid-19 shutdown happened, so they had to stay apart. But now they are finally able to meet again and do many of the things they enjoy. While on their first walk in a long time, they talk about the shutdown. Who are the heroes who helped everybody during this difficult time? Joel and his grandpa enjoy a beautiful summer day and talk about how important doctors, nurses, grocery store workers, truck drivers, and many others in our communities are, to all of us"--Provided by publisher.
