Diversity in children’s book is something we are passionate about at Toppsta. For children to be inspired and excited by the books they read, they need to see themselves and imagine the great things they can achieve.
An essential part of this is recognising the wonderful but often overlooked achievements of black people and communities throughout history. Which is why we love Black History Month!
Black History Month is every October in the UK and is gaining prominence every year. And what is the best way to celebrate? By sitting down with your child and sharing a book about black history together - whatever your own background.
Check out our selection of non-fiction and fiction books to fascinate and inspire kids everywhere, as well as our recommended picture books for younger ones. You might even learn something too!
