Be Your Best Self: Life Skills for Unstoppable Kids
When visiting a school, Paralympic gold medalist Danielle Brown was asked by seven-year-old Nathan Kai if she had ever written a book for children about being their best selves, thus the idea of Be Your Best Self was created and then co-authored by both.
Be Your Best Self is a comprehensive, kind and inspiring self-development book presenting key skills that every young person will find very helpful during their journey to success, whatever that means to them personally. From recommending the use of tools such as visualisation and mood boards, to understanding goal-setting and mindset, Danielle and Nathan also share their personal experiences in each topic, making them relevant for both younger and older readers.
Peppered with colourful contemporary, diverse and inclusive illustrations Be Your Best Self also presents some information in colourful sections, making it a light and approachable book. It covers self-esteem, affirmations, dealing with bullying, developing people skills, understanding role models and motivation as well as the importance of eating well, sleeping and being active. It’s a helpful reference book to be revisited through at different times in a child’s life as they grow and face different challenges. For young minds who want to dive deep in discovering who they are, what motivates them and how to keep going, Be Your Best Self is a must read.
