These books reinforce the need to care for our fellow humans, help children to understand that where we’re born is all down to luck and that we can all do things to make the world a better and safer place.
If you’re looking for Primary School books, or just some for your home bookshelves, this box is absolutely perfect.
These children’s books about refugees and immigration introduce children to brilliant refugee, asylum seeker and immigrant characters and storylines. And help with understanding. Highlighting a shared humanity and encouraging compassion.
If children can understand a little of what it feels like to flee home and change countries, they are more likely to develop empathy, which is better for everyone!
Inclusive children’s books are great conversation starters and help adults to learn as well!
We’re always asked to provide diverse books for children but what children need is diverse bookshelves, stories that reflect a broad range of life experiences that have been told by people from different backgrounds. We diversify your bookshelf. We diversify school bookshelves and we diversify home bookshelves.
These children’s books about refugees and immigration are a perfect antidote to some of the anti refugee sentiment that we heard around Brexit and in the last general election. Books include Boy Everywhere, a story about fleeing a boy fleeing Syria and ending up on a small boat. My Name is not Refugee and Just Like Us remind readers that refugee is a label, not someone’s identity. Our children may be refugees ,classmates to refugees or even policy makers of the future, making it essential
