Ofsted Inspectors ask all EYFS & KS1 Settings
How Inclusive is Your Bookshelf? Do Your Resources Reflect Diversity? Are you Promoting a Positive Image of Disability? If you can’t answer these questions you need ‘Hattie and friends’ to help!
We all have a responsibility to ensure young children see positive images of disability to increase their awareness and understanding.
Children will easily accept differences when they are presented in a sensitive way.
‘Hattie and friends’ stories feature disabled characters but the disability is NOT mentioned in the text. This is important because it doesn’t highlight or explain the disability but makes it perfectly acceptable and ‘normal’.
- 4 inclusive stories featuring Hattie with her friends and family.
- Familiar theme of family outings which all children can relate to.
- Appealing, friendly, cute characters.
- Perfect length for story time for young children.
- Educational content including: shapes, colour, weather, sounds, texture, transport, animals.
- Bright and colourful illustrations and clear text.
- Affordable price.
