Collection: Black Lives Matter

When we opened back in 2012 we were surprised at the lack of diversity in children's books. It really felt like very little had changed since we were children. In the last couple of years there has been a monumental shift in ensuring Black and Minority Ethnic children feature at the fore of children's books, for babies right through to teens. And more recently we have seen an increase in BAME writers and illustrators being published. It's been our absolute pleasure to stock, sell and champion these books.

Recently we have seen an unprecedented increase in requests from parents and carers on books that support discussions on Black history, racism and anti-racism with children. We now have a curated selection of titles online and many more in the shop. If you are looking for a specific title please get in touch, we are more than happy to help.
