Reflecting Realities Report 2023
CLPE (Centre for Language in Primary Education)
Reflecting Realities (6th edition) is an annual survey of the extent and quality of ethnic minority characters featured within Picturebooks, Fiction and Non-Fiction for ages 3–11 published in 2022.
The Report has statistics and figures on all aspects of representation but far more importantly, a rich and informative commentary on these findings – absolutely essential reading for anyone involved in children's literature.
It's an abslute thrill that once again, the Zeki books (pictured below - from the report) are picked out for a special mention.
