Reflecting Realities Book Pack (Primary Key Stage 1 & 2)

Selected by Letterbox Library and the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE)

Ref: 15507

The 2018 Reflecting Realities report by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) found that, of the children's books published in 2017: only 4% included BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) characters; only 1% had a BAME protagonist. And yet, 32.1% of pupils of compulsory school age in England are BAME (DfE, 2017). There have now been 6 years of research. You can view each of the annual Reflecting Realities reports on the CLPE website.

Inspired by our work on the CLPE Reflecting Realities Steering Group, this book pack brings you the best in contemporary books which offer accurate and well developed characterisations of people of colour, especially protagonists of colour. In order to keep the selected books relevant and relatable to your pupils, we will be constantly updating them alongside our colleagues at the CLPE. Please note that we therefore cannot provide you with a list of the books included in the pack. (In the unlikely event we send you titles you already have, we will of course substitute these). This book pack was last updated November 2023.
