Windrush 2020: The Story of the Windrush

An excellent resource and teaching aid,  authored by Kandace Chimbiri.  Although written primarily for children, this well researched book has been lovingly prepared with illustrations and well chosen anecdotes from some of the Windrush passengers including the late Sam King, Allan Wilmot and Lord Kitchener. It is an easy read but lends itself to deeper discussion and research making it appealing for all age groups.

It is also a highly recommended starting point for those who know nothing about the history of Windrush and for children, whom it was primarily written for. It also gives the opportunity to question and do further interesting research on many topics which the author manages to  skilfully include.

The Story of Windrush is available on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Story-Windrush-K-N-Chimbiri/dp/0956252508and at Waterstones.
