Here’s where you get diverse books for tweens. Or rather books that will make your 8, 9, 10 or 11 year old’s bookshelf looks more diverse.
Imagine silence. Noone is screaming or fighting. You think, ‘they must be in front of the TV or a console’, but no. You find them curled up LOVING a book. What a delight! And to know that book is making them more compassionate. It’s making them more understanding and expanding their horizons.
There is so much to think about with kids that it is a relief when you know something is taken care of. Just as we worry about them getting a good food diet, we worry about what they are putting in their brains, whether they’re using screens too much. AND whether they’re reading, reading good stuff that’s going to benefit them.
If you’re looking for a book of the month for kids, here’s two.
This is a wonderful two book bundle that contains the best, most brilliant, age appropriate, inclusive fiction. We read every one of these books so you don’t have to. These bundles give children the best reading experience. And teach them how to be kind, compassionate and understanding of others’ lives.
We select books that show diversity in race and culture and family set up. Books that introduce brilliant disabled characters and challenge gender roles through strong characters.
If you’re looking a gift for diverse books for tweens (8-11), this is perfect. We choose the books because we know what’s good.
Why we need inclusive kids’ books
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
This month’s books
(The books you’ll get in the box if you order now)
Zo and the Forest of Secrets: This book has EVERYTHING. It’s a page turning adventure story set in beautiful Trinidad. There are so many twists and turns in this novel set against a backdrop of family drama and environmental messages. I loved it so much and can’t wait for our 8-11 year old fans to read it.
The Unmorrow Curse: This is a book I just couldn’t put down. A modern day adventure story imbued with mythology. So many beautiful tales twisted into a heart stopping adventure that keeps the reader guessing until the very end.
These books will help children to feel seen to recognise that everybody deserves to be the main character of a story and that everybody has a story to tell.
