Derbyshire Libraries has a range of picture books, fiction and non-fiction titles tackling issues that refugees might experience. These might be useful for children and young people to have a better understanding around some of the challenges refugees face.
Furthermore, they are promoting a reading app to Russian and Ukrainian speakers, containing titles in their mother tongue, which is free to use. The app, called "Ukraine Unlimited Learning" by Odilo, can be accessed via the Google Play Store or the App Store.

Any Russian speakers with babies are also eligible for dual language Book Start baby packs, which are free to use with their babies.
