“This is a time for giving back, and I’m so thrilled about creating these bite-sized messages to help children understand what’s happening during this challenging time and to do so with incredibly talented people who all stepped forward to make it happen,” says Mike Young, co-chief executive officer, Splash Entertainment. “There is a real need for this type of content right now, and I’m so gratified that everyone we contacted to participate donated their time to the project without hesitation.”

The episodes, all set to music, provide messages to listeners with scripted vignettes about washing hands and other ways to stay healthy as well as activities to fill the day like art projects, practicing musical instruments, calling grandparents and more.
