Published in 2021, featuring cover artwork by Ashwin Chacko, this themed reading guide highlights books that celebrate diversity, representation and inclusion for children and young people aged 0–18. The Free to Be Me reading guide promotes equity and visibility of diverse stories in both school and public libraries, bookshops and shelves in the home.
The aim of this collection of truly excellent books is to help facilitate conversations and develop young people’s values, attitudes and knowledge – better equipping them to fully participate in, mould and build a more equitable society – ensuring that all children and their families feel welcomed, valued, celebrated and respected. By supporting our youngest citizens in this mission, we hope to enable tangible long term benefits for society that engender a more equitable future. Every child has the right to be free to be themselves.
