From Safe at Home to Safe at School in Kamloops

Author pens sequel in book series aimed at helping kids cope during pandemic; money raised is donated to charity

A Kamloops woman who wrote a book to raise funds for local charities while helping kids cope with the COVID-19 pandemic has penned a sequel, this time aimed at making the transition back to school a smooth one.

Safe at School is Sue Mark’s follow-up to April’s Safe at Home, a story and activity book that began as a teaching lesson for students in Thompson Rivers University’s education program, where Mark is a writing instructor.

The first run of Safe at School was printed on June 1 and the books are available to order by email at They are $8 each.

Mark is hoping the books prove popular with teachers.

“They are bigger and written in a photocopier-friendly format for teachers to easily share with students,” Mark told KTW.
