The power of children’s books with diverse representation
We asked 1000 little readers all about the importance of representation in children’s books.
Wonderbly was founded on the belief that any child, no matter who they are or what their name is, should be able to see themselves in a story. As a leading publisher when it comes to diversity representation, we want every child to feel welcome in our stories. The importance of this is echoed in the results of our recent survey in partnership with OnePoll.
We asked 1000 children in the UK aged 6 to 12 – and their parents – their thoughts on representation in children’s books. We strongly believe that when children see themselves reflected in the characters and story of the books they read, it shows them their own limitless potential.
