Help Our Children Read About Race

Recently it has come to my attention that our primary schools are in great need of books which can help our children read about race. This sadly, in the most part is due to lack of funding.

Together, with the help of a teacher friend, we collated an example bundle of books that ANY primary school library would be proud of having.

The sample bundle of 22 books below totals £275.

So far I have promised two primary schools that I will help them receive these books and I have no doubt that once I share this with my friends and family, there will be more.

I am covering one bundle of books myself.

PLEASE HELP ME.

Enough is enough.
