About: Founded in 2018, Généraliste exists to make representative books accessible to children of colour across the world. After struggling to find a marketplace that promoted diverse books for my son, I decided to take a leap of faith and start one of my own.

In our beginning stages, we aim to bring happiness to children of all ages, providing them with characters that look like themselves. I sincerely hope that we will be able to provide your institution with books that support children’s learning and development, and leaves everyone one of them with a smile.

Selling books for ages 0-12 and with an ever-growing title list, I hope that we can interest you in some of our products for your school library and classrooms.

We currently offer 25% discount on all our titles for schools, nurseries and any other educational institution in the UK and US.

In 2017, the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) asked UK publishers to submit books featuring BAME characters published that year. Out of 9,115 children’s books, only 4% of these (391 titles) featured BAME characters. And shockingly, only 1% had a BAME main character.

Alison Flood in an article for The Guardian rightly noted that this is in stark comparison to the 32.1% of schoolchildren of minority ethnic origins in England identified by the Department of Education in 2017.

There are thousands of wonderful BAME books available from around the world, however, up until now, they have been difficult to find and purchase. It is our goal to help support you in representing the best of the BAME community in literature, giving each child a chance to see themselves in the pages of a book.
