Book Spotlight

Rather than providing straight reviews of books, we want to spotlight books that have triggered questions, discussions and debate. As well as saying what we like about a book, we'll try to help publishers, writers and illustrators to develop their understanding of this field by suggesting things that might be problematic, or things that jarred. We'll asks questions and point out any useful learning points for the future, and we'd love you to join in the discussion. You can comment on any book by clicking on the link.

If you'd like to buy any of the books that we highlight here, please use Letterbox Library or another independent retailer rather than a certain online giant. Small companies like these have been providing expert advice and book selection for many years, but they need our support or we will lose them. 

For ideas on how to make your books more inclusive, take a look at these top tips to get you started.
