Books And Toys For Kids That Celebrate Diversity


Having conversations with children about race from a young age is a must.

At school they will meet and make friends from different cultures, races and who will speak different languages. Diversity is to be celebrated and it’s important to teach that from a young age. Having a diverse toy box and library is one of the steps you can take as a parent to help your kids grow up to be anti-racist. So we’ve rounded up books and toys that will do just that.
