EDUCATION

All of our books feature diverse characters, experiences and issues that make them ideal for use in classrooms and libraries. By giving readers the chance to experience other cultures and belief systems, our books satisfy the requirement in curriculums across the world for children to “develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually” (national curriculum in England for key stage 2). Please browse our gallery to find free resources that will support the use of our books in education; once clicked, each resource will appear at the top right-hand side of the page, ready to download.

To join an up-to-date discussion on cultural diversity in children’s books, please visit us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
