Chloe has a lot to navigate, from the comfort of her own home, because it’s not safe for her to go anywhere. Read Chloe’s adventure story in Chloe King Is Attending School from Her House!

Chloe comes with all of these great accessories:

1.) Mask

For when she absolutely must go to the store for periods of no more than 20 minutes!

2.) A computer

So that she can attend school from her bedroom. Read about Chloe’s tense interaction with Ms. Munro in the Chloe story, Chloe Turns Off Her Zoom Camera Because She Literally Can’t Even!

3.) Pajama pants and fuzzy slippers

Because no one sees the bottom half of you anyway!

4.) Sourdough Starter

Because she figures, why not? She has nothing but time!

Meet Chloe’s dog Fauci!

Her family adopted him in March just to have something different to do, and he gets to go on 15 walks a day!
