When I was looking through the programme of events for LGBT+ History Month and beyond. I was absolutely thrilled to see the ‘Pop’n’Olly’ children’s inclusive story reading event. Not only because these inclusive children’s books are amazing but it was something I could look forward to sitting down with my own children to enjoy. A rainbow in the lockdown cloud.
The event will include a book reading by author Olly Pike, followed by a Q&A. You can book to join in the event at 10am on Friday 12 February here https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/arts-and-culture/event-details.aspx?instance=338806
The event also got me thinking about what Curriculum Resources we hold in the library. Resources like the Pop’ n’ Olly’ books are great ways for parents, caregivers and teachers to start conversations with children about equality, diversity, and inclusion. A decision I made as a parent to start as early as possible. So, if you would like to join me, let’s look at what your Library has to offer.
