Children's bedtime stories are being drawn into the culture war. Whether it's the cancellation of the legendary Enid Blyton or trigger warnings being placed on classic children's texts, reading to your child is becoming more and more politicised.

However, that's not all now increasing numbers of book shops are making sure the kids books on their shelves are satisfactorily 'woke'. There are now children's reads on white privilege and gender roles...

The retailer Waterstones, for example, is displaying titles such as Gender Swapped Fairy Tales, How To Be A Better White Person and the tale of a gingerbread man refugee.

Bizarrely, Waterstones has included My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism - a satire on woke culture written by GB News presenter Andrew Doyle - right next to the children's books.

Others woke titles available around the world today include:

'Hey You! An Empowering Celebration of Growing Up Black', which is about the experiences black children encounter growing up in a systemically racist society.

'This Book Is Feminist' - this work is aimed at pre-teens and teenagers, and looks at various social justice struggles from a feminist perspective.

'Young Gifted and Black' - a book by Jamia Wilson is a celebration of 'icons of colour from the past and present'.

'Antiracist baby' - this book is available in a New York book retailer. Ibram X Kendi's non- fiction book is aimed at children aged 0-3.

'Woke Baby!' by Mahogany L. Browne is another celebratory work. This time the 'celebration' is 'of what it means to be a baby and what it means to be woke.'
