    Lightbulb Re: Some ideas for multicultural resources

    The book 'Elmer' by David McKee is a fab book to start looking at diversity with little ones.

    It's a great starting point for discussions about the differences in how people look and what this means and if looking different is good or bad etc.

    You can use this book to support many of areas of the curriculum in your planning with EYFS.
