Diverse Stories For Kids

this event has no time specified
Subjects: English

What to expect

If your children love storytelling, join Imagin-ory for a brilliant Black Lives Matter series, which focuses entirely on diverse children's books. Storytelling not only inspires your children and ignites their imagination and creativity from their earliest years, but it also teaches them about important topics, including racism and diversity. Celebrate differences and children's books on diversity in this series of readings, which will cover race, racism and positive picture books with black lead characters.

Aimed at children aged 1-5, Imagin-ory will bring stories to life. This live session is being broadcast on Monday 22 May from 10am-1pm on Facebook. Story Imagin-ory has an extensive range of children's books about diversity that they will use across the session and share with your kids. There will be a mixture of picture books with black lead characters and books covering racism and you can choose which ones you'd like to watch.

Whether your little girl or boy enjoys a picture book or a true story, this session will share some of the best children's books. This is the ideal way to educate young readers on such important matters - change starts at home. A children’s book is one of the most effective and practical tools for initiating these critical conversations, so make sure you tune in for these wonderful stories! For more famous storytellers, check out Read Along With Michelle Obama or Fergie and Friends.

At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.

Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
