Reading and learning are for everyone, so it’s vital that children can see themselves reflected in the stories that they read. Every child should have the opportunity to relate to the characters they see in their books and build on a sense of identity and self-worth.

We are proud to feature and celebrate a wide range of characters in our books, with different abilities, different gender identities, and diverse cultural, ethnic and social backgrounds. Our books help children to gain a broader perspective on life, and promote a greater understanding of people’s differences. Reading about varied human experiences helps to break down stereotypes, challenge bias and promote inclusivity. When readers encounter characters with different abilities or backgrounds, they learn that everyone is unique and that differences should be celebrated.

We are careful to use authors who have direct experience of the issues in their books, ensuring authentic insight and understanding.
