AriSEE’s book promotion is about reviewing ethnically diverse children’s books and promoting them via social media, with a redirection to our website where there will be activities associated to the books for parents to do with their children.
The books and activities will promote roll models, achievement and dispel racist indoctrination that has infected our society.
This project is still in the production phase and further information will follow.
“Only 1% of British children’s books feature a main character who is black or minority ethnic, a investigation into representations of people of colour has found, with the director calling the findings “stark and shocking”” – Taken from the Guardian article called “Only 1% of children’s books have BAME main characters – UK study” in 2018
“Improving the (lack of) ‘diversity’ in children’s books is one of the most critical issues in the publishing industry today and is, therefore, currently at the core of industry discussions. Our research suggests this attention is understandable as people of colour continue to be under-represented among children’s book creators.” – Booktrust
