Every year more families consist of parents who are of the same gender. And education builds bridges. As Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman puts it, "Children need to know that some people have two mummies or two daddies."
All primary schools now must teach about different family types, including LGBTQ+ families. We strongly think ALL primary schools should have reading material that normalises families where two parents are of the same gender, books that feature trans or non-binary characters, books that truly reflect our society.
If you agree and want to help make this happen please donate here to send either Eve’s New Brother or Ready for an Adventure to the school of your choice. Or we can choose a school on your behalf.
"The cart waited impatiently in the gully and begged me to sneak out noiselessly"

The exciting tale of a small girl who climbs onto the forbidden bullock cart. She’s mighty! She’s a braveheart! She’s... fallen off! This lyrical story from debut children’s author Arti Jain is peculiar, scary, funny and brilliant. The spare, dark yet comical artwork by Tanmay Acharya is such a treat. This is a very special book.

"The witch had a scarf that was orange, blue and black. With long cornrowed braids that swept over her back"
Victoria Bain concocts powerful alchemy in this magical story. But where is the witch's spell book? Or is it a cook book? Victoria’s artwork is fresh and unusual, using dusky pencil on a tonal background with colourful splashes of bright collage.

Girls are wild and crazy and free. They are funny, fabulous and feisty. Girls are bursting with everything. They write codes and symphonies... They also stand on tables. So their dress might be pretty but they're not just a princess!
Parents of girls will totally relate to this stomping poem. This is a love letter to girls by Sheju Adiyatiparambil-John and Judy Skidmore who say that girls are so much more than a pretty dress and a bow in their hair.Still very much in production so we don't have any images yet!
