Story of the month - My Shadow is Pink
Read by Laura who is an Early Years Trainer
My Shadow is Pink is a beautifully written rhyming story that touches on the subjects of gender identity, self acceptance, equality and diversity.
Inspired by the author’s own little boy, ‘Shadow’s’ main character likes princesses, fairies and things ‘not for boys’…he soon learns (through the support of his dad) that everyone has a shadow that they sometimes feel they need to hide. This is an important book for a new generation of children (and adults alike) which exemplifies the concepts of unconditional love, respect and positive parenting.
Story of the month - My Uncle And Me
Read by Emily who works at the Ashbourne Day Nurseries Support Office
Follow the journey of a loving uncle and nephew, through their day to day fun activities, such as swimming and playing together in the park. This little boy is often compared to his uncle because they look the same, but he wants his own identity. It’s not always easy being in someone else’s shadow, with people expecting you to behave the same and make similar choices. This fun, rhyming children’s book is aimed at anyone who has been compared to their siblings, family members or friends. The key thing to remember is, you are one of a kind no matter what anyone else says.
Story of the month - The Many Colours of Harpreet Singh
Read by Chanelle who works at Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Fenny Stratford
Harpreet Singh has a different colour for every mood and occasion, from pink for dancing to bhangra beats to red for courage. He especially takes care with his patka – the turban all Sikhs wear – smoothing it out and making sure it always matches his outfit. But when Harpreet’s mom finds a new job in a snowy city and they have to move, all he wants is to be invisible. Will he ever feel a happy sunny yellow again?
