Shine Books

Shine Books is an ever-growing series of inclusive children’s books which raise awareness, remove stigma and normalise a range of conditions and disabilities such as dyspraxia, ADHD and Tourette’s. Within each story there is key information about their qualities and how certain situations can be dealt with. Since self-publishing the first 4 books in April 2021, Jo has sold over 2000 books through social media alone and Jo was inspired to start Shine through her job as a teacher, having taught both11-16-year olds and 16+ and was astounded by the lack of knowledge and understanding the students had about conditions such as diabetes, ADHD and dyslexia.
