Diversity & Inclusion

Diverse children’s books are vitally important; every child should be able to see themselves, and their friends, in the books that they read. Diverse books encourage empathy and inclusion, and can teach us about people and events in history that are all too often forgotten. At Laburnum our collections are age-appropriate and offer children the chance to see different perspectives, validate their own lived experiences and embrace the similarities and differences of the lives of others. We have included the work of a variety of diverse authors and illustrators. 50% discount and next day delivery
