Our aim is for all children to have access to diverse bookshelves to help them understand that there is no such thing as normal. We curate book collections from top publishers and authors that are first and foremost wonderfully entertaining and beautifully illustrated. BUT also show diversity in race, culture, family set up, relationships, gender roles and representations of disability. This is to help more children see themselves and their families in the books they read and to help all children make sense of the world and grow up with a solid grounding in equality, expecting, understanding and accepting diversity.
Little Box of Books was set up by Lynsey Pollard in 2018 because she never saw their single parent family in storybooks and saw the impact it had on her son. Now she works with families, businesses and schools to ensure book collections reflect the population of the UK
