Episode 19: Representation in books and resources with Laura Henry-Allain MBE 

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Shaddai Tembo is once again joined by Laura Henry-Allain MBE, an award-winning international storyteller, educationalist, producer, and consultant. In this episode, Laura and Shaddai explore why representation in resources is important throughout your continuous provision. 

Fostering respect for other cultures

This episode highlights that settings should accurately reflect our culturally diverse society so that all children learn about the society in which they live; to foster respect for other cultures and to ensure that children from minority ethnic groups can relate to their environment. 

Laura goes on to explain that education is a key tool for ensuring that racist attitudes do not progress into the children of the next generation. Children are not born with discriminatory attitudes, they’re a learned behaviour.
