March 2021

Children in England started going back to school from Monday 8th March and many pupils have being given Lateral Flow Covid Tests before being admitted to the classrooms.


Amy-Scarlett underwent Lateral Flow Testing training and put together this handy illustrated guide for the pupils at the school where she works, to put them at their ease. 


The idea is to show them what they can expect. Thought it would be nice to share it!

Amy-Scarlett took part in Inktober 2020, which challenges artists and illustrators to come up with a drawing a day on a range of pre-set prompts every day during October. Here are Amy-Scarlett's responses to some of the Inktober prompts.

Why, Mummy? is designed to be read aloud by parents or carers or for young readers to try reading themselves! We hope you will enjoy our picture book!
