Lockdown Cartoon #13: Let’s Exchange!

My 7-year-old son gets plenty schoolwork during lockdown. I sit next to him and do my work. The other day he looked at my work (I was drawing a picture of fluffy wooly socks), and said, ‘It’s not fair.’
So we exchanged work. He started drawing (he is a really good drawer), and I had a look at his work. I encountered a word ‘fronted adverbials.’ I didn’t know what it means. I asked my husband. He didn’t know either. He is English by the way. 
I wouldn’t have thought homeschooling the 7-year-old would be this tricky. The bright side is, I’ve been learning a lot through his schoolwork during lockdown and I feel a bit smarter than before. 
To record what it’s like to be at home during lockdown with young children, I’m documenting my everyday family life with cartoons.
Here is today’s cartoon. 
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents her family's experience during COVID-19 lockdown with relatable cartoons.

Noriko’s picture books are available here or on Amazon.
