Deegee the Corgi
Joann Song, author
What does 2020 look like, through the eyes of the family dog? Deegee the Corgi lives in a bright yellow house in Los Angeles with her family, the Lees. They live a happy life full of adventure, friends, and exploring new places. All of that changes in the year 2020. Deegee can sense that strange things are happening. The neighborhood feels different. The Lees are home all the time. People are wearing masks outdoors. And there’s a sense of sadness in the air. Deegee the Corgi follows the life of a Korean - American family as they live through the Covid-19 pandemic. Told from the point of view of the family dog, the story explores the fear, loneliness, and confusion families experienced — but also the love, strength, and hope that endured. This delightfully illustrated children’s book will help parents talk to their kids about the 2020 pandemic — and remind them how the world came together to get through it.
