    The Feminist Revolution"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."
    Gloria Steinem

    I want to start this blog post by celebrating all that women have achieved over the past year. 2017 was a big year for activism and speaking out against sexism which has led to powerful movements fuelling change, such as #TimesUp and #MeToo. This has given many women the courage to speak out against sexual misconduct across various industries. 2017 also saw a big push in promoting women in STEM, more female politicians on the world's stage than ever before, as well as F1's banishment of grid

    Without even working in children’s books, it is obvious to most which books are timeless favourites as their names continuously crop up. You know exactly which books I’m talking about, don’t you?

Their popularity is schoolwide and the interest just doesn’t seem to fade. These books are responsible for getting hundreds of thousands of children to read, a feat which in this day and age is actually rather hard!

    It is that time of the year again for us to climb to the highest point of Badger Towers and to shout out about our very new, and very exciting series.

    We are all well aware of the multiple benefits that reading brings to our health and happiness. The advantages appear endless; reducing the symptoms of depression, staving off Alzheimer’s and Dementia, improving memory, focus and concentration, widening vocabulary, advancing analytical skills, the list goes on. But what if, despite all these beneficial reasons to read, your pupils are refusing to jump on the reading for pleasure bandwagon? One major point to take into consideration is your offering of books. Are they dated? Are they tatty? And most importantly, have you chosen them for your pupil, or have they chosen the book themselves?

    Comprehension activities for children can be activities they just have to work through.  Solid, worthy, laudable.

    Or they can be so exciting, dynamic and enjoyable that they are the first thing they tell their parents about as they leave school.

    I have been asked to write a little something about our exciting new poster pack. Now seems a very good time to climb to the very top of Badger Towers to shout out across this land that now, more than ever, should be a time to embrace and celebrate our differences. We have many poster packs that celebrate people that can be seen as role models for our younger generations to admire, and more importantly, to learn from.

    Teachers and pupils across the country love the great titles that we provide every term. But who are the people that keep those brand-new Badger Learning Books coming by the boxful every year? We caught up with Kerry from our Book Collections Development Team and Danny from the Publishing Team to learn what it takes to source suitable titles for teachers.
