Coming to England: An Inspiring True Story Celebrating the Windrush Generation by Baroness Floella Benjamin

Regular price £6.99 £6.99 Sale

A picture book story about the triumph of hope, love, and determination, Coming to England is the inspiring true story of Baroness Floella Benjamin: from Trinidad, to London as part of the Windrush generation, to the House of Lords.

When she was only ten years old, Floella Benjamin, along with her older sister and two younger brothers, set sail from Trinidad to London, to be reunited with the rest of their family. Alone on a huge ship for two weeks, then tumbled into a cold and unfriendly London, coming to England wasn't at all what a young Floella had expected.

Coming to England is both a deeply personal story and is universally relevant – Floella's experiences of moving home and making friends will resonate with young children, who will be inspired by her trademark optimism and joy.

This is a true story with a powerful message: that courage and determination can always overcome adversity.
