You could really notice the spring growth of winter annual weeds in some fields this past week. A winter annual weed is an unwanted plant in your field that germinated last fall, overwintered, resumed growth this spring, and will soon begin flowering and producing seed this spring. There are numerous species of winter annual weeds common in row-crop production in the region. Henbit, marestail, field pennycress, shepherd’s purse, and tansy mustard, just to name a few.

This short book was written to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding the COVID-19. This book is an invitation for families to discuss the full range of emotions arising from the current situation. It is important to point out that this resource does not seek to be a source of scientific information, but rather a tool based on fantasy. My recommendation is to print this material so children can draw on it. Remember that emotions are processed through repetitive play and stories read multiple times. Share COVIBOOK and help ease kiddo's anxiety all over the world. The book was written by Manuela Molina.
Nebraska Extension's Learning Child and 4-H Youth Development teams offer several resources which may be helpfly for you, your family, your children, and your community during this change as families, children, and providers experience social distancing.
