Built from a passion for diverse and inclusive children’s books

Hi! My name is Isa and I started Glorious Reads with the help of my children, Joseph and Lily. I’ve always been a reader so it was important to my husband and I to ensure our children loved books.

As they got older, I found myself spending hours online researching diverse and inclusive books to add to our bookshelf. I wanted them to read books about children that looked like them so they could see themselves in the story and determine who they are and what they liked before society determined it for them.

I’d buy as many of the books that funds would allow and my kids drank them up! I began to realise that other parents might also be looking for the latest diverse stories so we decided to share our favourites on Instagram and our blog.

Since then we’ve explored creating different types of book content all with the aim of getting diverse books in front of more people!
