Our Story

Back in March of this year, the whole world retreated indoors. We were moved to create something to help children everywhere find the beauty and excitement amidst these strange circumstances. When the World Stays Inside is a whimsical children's book that takes a look at the power of creativity and the importance of cherishing the precious time spent with the people we love. 

As first-time story creators, we hope that this book will serve as a keepsake of this moment in time while providing inspiration for every stormy day indoors for years to come.

What a delight! I have often made reference during this pandemic about the importance of an "attitude of gratitude" and about having "hope". This book captures all of this and made me smile. And I would like to share it with my four children!
