Representation in Children's Literature

Representation in Children's Literature
Reflecting Realities in the classroom

May 2024 | 152 pages | Corwin UK
The under-representation of characters of colour in children's literature in the UK is quantified in the CLPE's award winning Reflecting Realities research.Through this research, the CLPE actively disrupts the demand-and-supply chain and holds the children's publishing industry to account, encouraging it to do better.

This book:
* explores what Reflecting Realities teaches us;
* empowers teachers to take positive to ensure classroom libraries are truly representative;
* takes time to reflect on the research;
* enables teachers to explore what constitutes quality representation; 
* includes practical support on how to translate this thinking into positive change in the classroom;
* provides guidance for curating literature for young readers;
* highlights how engagement with inclusive literature positively impacts school reading cultures and wider teaching and learning.
