A Manhattan mom has gotten creative when it comes to trying to explain coronavirus to her small children.

Stefanie Trilling, who is a legal marketing attorney with no artistic training, began painting small lessons in the form of recreated children's book covers.

Some of the creative titles include "Cloudy with a Chance of Panic Hoarding," "Llama Llama Hasn't Changed Pajamas" and "Green Eggs and Wash Your Hands."

"I started painting cartoonified coronaviruses," Trilling told WPIX-TV. "My daughter had been talking a lot about what coronavirus meant to her, what it meant for her, the life that she knew at that time."

Those initial doodles evolved into the recreated book covers. She's now trying to sell the paintings for charity — and she's trying to find a nonprofit where she can partner to help donate the proceeds.
