About the Author
Beth Cox is an Inclusion and Equality Consultant and a co-founder of Inclusive Minds (R), an initiative that connects publishers with young people with lived experience of marginalisation. She’s passionate about inclusion in all aspects of life, and understand that the acceptance and appreciation of a diverse range of bodies is integral to this. Her goal is to support everyone involved in the creation of children’s books and publications to be active participants in inclusive representation, to the point where inclusion becomes totally natural and incidental – just as it should be. Beth is the author of the ‘Mindfully Me’ series of activity books, alongside Natalie Costa.
