“Books need to enable children to look through windows in order to see the realities of others and into mirrors in order to see their own reality reflected.”

Emily Style

At Overchurch Infant School, we understand how important reading is to ensure children develop empathy and experience opportunities to read books which reflect the wide world in which they live. We are proud to have invested a lot of money in our school and class libraries, and the bookshelves are now overflowing with high quality, inclusive and representative literature.
These beautiful picture books will allow our young readers to deepen and enrich their understanding of the diverse world they are growing up in, and their place in it.
