Free Downloadable Resource, including book list organised by topic, and planning suggestions.
Representation in picture books is crucial within the Early Years, as children develop their sense of self and of the world around them. This resource provides teachers with a comprehensive list of high-quality books, which feature BAME characters. The list is accompanied by supporting planning suggestions to enable practitioners’ creative responses to the texts. Organised by popular Early Years topics, the list aims to help embed books with BAME characters into weekly or termly planning, increasing the visibility of diversity in the classroom.
