Coming to England: An Inspiring True Story Celebrating the Windrush Generation
A 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. Follow ten-year-old Floella as she and her family set sail from the Caribbean to a new life in London. Alone on a huge ship for two weeks, then tumbled into a cold and unfriendly London, coming to England wasn't at all what Floella had expected .
. . What will her new school be like? Will she meet the Queen?Filled with optimism and joy, yet deeply personal and relevant, young children will follow Floella's experiences of moving home and making friends.
Alongside vibrant illustrations by Diane Ewen, this powerful story shows little people how courage and determination can always overcome adversity.
