Many kids are building forts at home during isolation as parents work at kitchen tables and bedrooms with closed doors. No daycare, no playgrounds, no friends and what is this virus everyone is afraid of? .... something so comforting about a fort of one’s own. This is Nova Fernandes. She is 5. She is a volunteer at the museum but hasn’t been able to come since the pandemic. She misses Wooly and her “boss” Katie.
