Local Parents create child's book about masks

(WPBF Channel 2 Palm Beach) — A Florida couple wrote and illustrated a book titled, “The Love Behind the Mask,” to create something that could help kids understand the importance of a mask.

“The book was basically talking to my own kids about why we have to wear the masks,” Lizy Toth said.

When the coronavirus pandemic began, Lizy and Chris Toth, who are parents of young twins boys, had the idea to create a children’s book to explain why masks are worn.

As some young children across the state prepare to return to school and wear a mask, the couple hopes this book could be used by teachers.

“So when they first come into school they can go through the book and maybe help the whole class feel really good about wearing masks all day and doing it because they want to, not because they have to,” Chris Toth said.
