At the moment, around 300 million children worldwide can’t go to their schools due to the coronavirus outbreak. So many parents face the struggle of keeping their kids occupied at home. As we’ve already learned before, homeschooling is not as easy as it seems; therefore, for this reason, various educational resources are popping up, making thousands of parents’ lives way easier.

Mo Willems⁠—a bestselling author and illustrator⁠—has announced that he will be teaching drawing every weekday on YouTube to kids who are now at home. Mo will be having sessions called Lunch Doodles where he will occupy the little ones by doodling together with them.
