Local author and
children’s book on C
BY CAROL REIF
On the surface, community life is looking relatively normal nowadays.
Folks are browsing in stores. ey’re eating out in restaurants. Getting a trim at
the local barber’s. Soaking up the rays at the public pool. Walking their dogs.
You would almost not know that there was a pandemic going on, except for all
the colorful masks.
Everyone’s wearing some kind of facial covering to help slow the coronavirus’s
spread. Well, most are, anyway.
If the sight makes you nervous as an adult, just imagine how confusing, if not
scary, it can be for our littlest citizens.
Children who are just learning language rely heavily on facial expressions to in-
terpret the world.
Kids also read body language. If all the adults around them are ill at ease, their
own anxieties can multiply.
North Salem’s Lauren Rankel knows all about that.
A former preschool teacher, she always had a children’s book or two kicking
around in her head. But the mom of two girls never seemed to have the time—or
a big enough incentive—to get those ideas down on paper.
en recently a very dear friend con ded in her that her usually cheerful and
curious 5-year-old son was becoming too afraid to leave the house.
He couldn’t understand why the postman, or the nice cashier at the grocery store,
looked so di erent. With masks on, they could all be strangers, as far as the boy
Rankel’s goal as an educator has always been to respect and validate children’s
feelings, but she wasn’t exactly sure how to help him.
en a light bulb went o : Make him a character in a book, a book that tackled
the subject—in a gentle and upbeat way.
Although a creative person, Rankel can’t draw for beans. So she recruited Eliza-
beth Barksdale, a multimedia artist from Mahopac she met while taking a class at
Railyard Arts Studio in Croton Falls.
Barksdale, a mom herself, enthusiastically agree to help.
ey thought that, because the timing was so critical, the book should be pub-
lished electronically. To make it accessible to all, they also decided to make it free.
“We Can All Be Helpers: Comforting the Fear of Masks During the Time of
COVID-19” tells the story of Finn and his pooch, Doodle, as they encounter fa-
miliar faces—now masked—on their daily walkies around town.
e real-life “Finn” took to it immediately, Rankel said recently.
First of all, he really loved being a character in a book. But, more importantly, he
got the twin messages—that people may look di erent now, but underneath they’re
still the same…and that even the youngest among us can be part of the solution no
matter how overwhelming the situation.
One of the nicest parts of the e-book format is that its reader can use a slider bar
to show each character with their mask on and with it o .
Part of the COVID-19 fear factor is the loss of control. is feature gives kids a
bit of that back, the author and the artist both said.
Rankel said she’s glad to have found a small way to “lift up others” while also
gaining some personal comfort.

“We all feel a little bit helpless now,” said Barksdale.
Rankel swears she couldn’t have done it without her artistic friend’s colorful il-
“When people share their strengths, beautiful things can happen,” she said.
Barksdale has worked on loads of child-oriented projects and programs for mu-
seums and organizations, and her love of nature, science and people-watching is
front and center in the book. A little white bird alights gently from a tree and a
comical seal bobs in the harbor. e pink posies that Grandma’s tending were in-
spired by the blooms in her own garden.
Barksdale said she is grateful to be able to nd a way to use her skills to help
people, especially youngsters. After all, she and her husband, David, who works
for Blue Sky Animation Studios, have two of their own: 15-year-old Raven and

its simple but powerful message.
Children need to know that experiencing fear, anxiety and anger is perfectly nor-
mal. Owning those feelings is the rst step toward calming them, Barksdale said.
As far as taking back control and being a responsible citizen goes, wearing a mask
in public is, she added, “the one thing we can all do–keep our germs to ourselves.”
Rankel moved to North Salem last fall, but she had been coming to the town all
her life to visit her grandmother.
“I always had such peace in my heart when I came here,” she recalled.
When grannie passed away, she and her husband, Stephen, and their youngest
daughter, Hailey, 19, moved into the old homestead. e couple’s oldest child, Ki-
ersten, 24, lives in New Orleans, working on coastal restoration projects. Hailey is
Rankel’s grandmother lived a good long life, probably because she knew how to
decompress once in a while. “Some people do yoga; she had a martini at 5 o’clock
every day,” Rankel said.
Being on “alert” 24/7 because of the pandemic is causing many to become emo-
“When your primary focus is safety, it can take a lot out of you,” Rankel said.
She is not just talking out of her hat. She teaches professional development
courses for fellow educators in STEAM, nature “infusion” and mental health sup-
port for students.
But human beings have to let themselves “o the hook” once in a while, she
“Don’t set such lofty goals. It’s OK if all you did today is go out for a walk,” she
We also shouldn’t beat others up for being less than perfect, she said.
ere may be many reasons why some are not wearing a mask. Public sham-
ing will only cause them to go on the defensive. It’s much better to gently remind
them (back to the book again) that they would be doing something for others…
In Rankel’s book, being sensitive “empowers” people to make good choices.
“When we know better, we do better,” she said.
