    My Daughter loves her subscription!

    Imagine Me Stories has been a saving grace for our family, as we were new to the country and lived in a town lacking culture and diversity. Each month, an Imagine Me Stories subscription would arrive and my Daughter lights up, immediately opens the box and spread out her books and activity sheets. She even takes the books to bed with her.
    Having your own representation in one's home is so important especially within the UK. My Daughter has even shared stories from her books within her classroom so the learning has even extended beyond our household.
    Thank you Keisha for having this vision and for blessings so many households with content, characters and history for our young black community. You are making a difference.
