It’s so important the books we use in schools reflect our communities and that children see characters who are similar to themselves in their reading material.
The National Literacy Trust can help your school diversify the texts studied and the books in your school library through our resources, training and school programmes.
We have curated lists of our resources and book lists compiled as a quick reference, supporting you to include a diverse range of texts in your teaching and book collections. You can download these lists from the Available files to the right of this page.
Some highlights include:
Young Readers Programme: booklists: covering a wide range of ages and interests, including LGBTQIA+ and Refugee and migrant stories.
