<p>I also want to give a special shout-out to a small independent book shop called <a href="https://diversekids.co.uk/">DiverseKids</a>. We came across Diverse Kids at the <a href="https://gavthorpe.co.uk/2017/08/12/nine-worlds-geekfest-2017/">Nine Worlds event last year</a> – they have a great selection of books covering multiculturalism, transgender characters, same-gender relationships, adoption, divorce and a whole host more. We’ve bought several books for Sammy already, and Santa will definitely be stopping by this Christmas.</p>
