My daughter is secure and proud in her identity. This is partly beacuse she has regular stories - which are so important for young children - of people who look like her.
I get a mixed subscriptions so there's books for me and my class. I love this subscription. It's affordable and I love the books. We now ha e more books than we can get through. Thank you guys!
I love this product. Receiving new, beautiful books every month is a dream. My little one is too young to read but it feels like we're building an amazing library for her! I stopped my subscription earlier in the year to save some money but ended up restarting it weeks later because my husband and I felt it was absolutely worth it
I absolutely love this concept. I struggled to find reading books for my son, the excitement when I stumbled upon this platform via Instagram. (Exactly what I needed for my little man) books and activities that he can relate to.
I hated reading as a child and so I told myself if I ever had the opportunity to become a mom I wanted to encourage and teach my kids the importance of reading.
Thank you so much imagine me stories for allowing me to do so in a fun and exciting way xxx
My son is 2 next month and we have been receiving these for the last 9months. I absolutely love the delivery. So well presented, great books and lots of fantastic work sheets that I will definitely be doing with my son. Fantastic idea.
I have also connected with other black owned businesses through this too.
Thank you so much x x
I love receiving these books. Not only because of the issue of representation, but because we learn about the life and work of inspiring black people, which they will not learn at school. I love the worksheets as well, I can use them in different ways, I even use them to practise writing in Spanish, our home language. Not all learning is visible, but I know the educational value of imagine me stories is...infinite!! Love it!!
I was so relieved and excited to hear about this subscription. Even better, my husband and I have not been disappointed. The books are varied, inspiring and feature diverse characters. One example is a lovely book that included inspirational women of all races - it was included in the space-themed pack.
Regarding activities, recently our package had a poster about an individual my son was asked to research as part of homeschooling. It was a welcome surprise to have a break from the screen/ Google because we happened to have a timely and quality delivery from Imagine Me Stories.
The customer service - namely, the speed at which they reply to emails - is also really impressive. So happy our 2 year old and 4 year old have this in their lives. I have and will continue to recommend Imagine Me Stories to family, friends and aquaintances.
I feel that I am just as excited as my daughter to receive the monthly packages.
I am always amazed by the selection of books that you are able to source.
When reading my youngest child (2) often references characters in the book as family members such as grandma and grandad. This makes me smile as it shows that the representation of black characters within the books is having a positive impact on their reading experience, making it both relatable and enjoyable.
Thank you Imagine me stories for creating a beautiful reading experience for my children.
Last year, my mixed race son told me that his, his dad's and his sister's skin colour wasn't normal. After talking through why he felt like this, he told me it's because he only sees people that look like mummy (white skin) in books and on TV. I have always tried to bring my children up to feel proud and confident in who they are, but something was still lacking. That was when I discovered 'Imagine Me Stories' and I haven't looked back since. My 2 and 6 year old can now identify with stories, often stating "that's me!" as we read together. Not only are the books carefully picked and presented with incredibly resources, but, as a family, we are overcoming barriers we didn't know we had. Thank you for all you do x
Imagine me stories has opened a whole new world of reading to my daughter. In a world where black girls / boys are underrepresented in books it is so wonderful to read diverse books that involves black children. Plus I don't have to stress to look for books for my daughter as imagine me delivers them to my front door. I am really pleased and my daughter can continue to read even in the lock down. Thank you imagine me stories. ☺
