The International Network for Child and Family Centred Care proudly present this collection of artwork from children around the world. We gave children the opportunity to share a piece of artwork that reflected something about their experience of life during COVID-19 restrictions (March-May 2020). The descriptions, stories and poems presented in this e-book have been transferred verbatim from the original submissions. For each submission, we asked about the level of COVID-19 restrictions experienced by the child at the time of their entry. These levels consisted of: · None (no change to normal living routine) · Minimal (e.g. still attending school, but not allowed to play with friends after school) · Some (e.g. still attending school, but not allowed to play with friends after school and needed to stay 1.5 -2 meters away) · Moderate (e.g. home schooling, able to go out to parks) · Severe (not allowed to leave the family home) · Other Fifty-five children from 17 different countries, aged 4-14yrs, submitted artwork. Their experiences reflect different levels of having to stay at home; some children were still able to attend school while others have experienced more intense lockdown.
