‘This is Me!’ Book packs

After a few weeks away from the blog I am back and picking up right where I left off, with the ever-inspiring Inclusive Minds and Letterbox Library. But this time… Together! Exciting, hey?

In my previous posts I have chatted with Beth from Inclusive Minds and Fen from Letterbox Library and celebrated the amazing work they do to champion inclusive books. Now they have combined forces for a special project creating two ‘This is Me!’ book packs, one for early years

and one for primary years.

These book packs have been carefully selected by Letterbox Library in collaboration with Inclusive Minds to celebrate the best and brightest in inclusive children’s books. Here’s what they have to say about them:
“Bright, breezy and fun-packed. A gorgeous mix of board books and picture books. Ideal for nurturing positive attitudes to diversity and difference in the very young. Multicultural, global, images of disability and gentle challenges to gender stereotyping. A perfectly embracing collection!” (Early years book pack)
“Our celebration of diversity and ‘natural’ inclusion continues with these Real Books which have also been selected for their strong characterisations and engaging narratives.” (Primary book pack)

I am genuinely excited about these book packs. As well as a few familiar titles there are some new and intriguing books that I can’t wait to get my hands on. They look great, and they have passed the Letterbox Library and Inclusive Minds test, so I know they will be great.

The Early years pack includes:

Daddy, Papa, and Me (1056)
Mommy, Mama, and Me (1057)
Freddie and the Fairy (1401)
The Great Big Book of Families (1018)
Lulu Loves Stories + CD (1318)
Mary Had a Little Lamb (0192)
My Face Book (0012)
Max The Champion (0193)
One, Two, Three…Run! (0194)
This Is Our House + DVD (9539)
Siddharth and Rinki (9870)
The Worst Princess (0195)

And the Primary pack:

10,000 Dresses (0196)
Because Amelia Smiled (0197)
Being Ben (0198)
The Big Brother (1343)
A Bus Called Heaven (0199)
The Django (0142)
Fussy Freya (0143)
Granny Torrelli Makes Soup (8736)
Have Fun, Molly Lou Melon (0200)
Pass It, Polly (9813)
The Unforgotten Coat (0053B)
What’s Up With Jody Barton? (0201)

Over the next month or so I plan to review the early years ‘This is Me!’ book pack and the lower age range books from the primary pack. Watch this space! All the books can be bought separately from Letterbox Library. They have done all the leg work to ensure that the books they sell are truly inclusive, so if any of these titles catch your eye, visit them and reward their efforts by ordering the books from them, here.
