    You Are Awesome

    Matthew Syed

    Product Code: YAWS
    Paperback 9 years +
    (6)
    Hand-picked favourites
    Praised by Dermot O'Leary, two-time Olympian Matthew Syed's Children's Illustrated and Non-Fiction British Book Award-winning You Are Awesome is a motivational book that encourages children to challenge the beliefs that hold them back.

    Full of tips and advice that will inspire a more positive mindset, it's encouraging and empowering reading for any introverted children. Matthew explains how having a negative attitude and thinking you can't do things more often than not leads to not being able to carry out tasks.

    However, if your children can build their resilience and change their mindset, things could be very different. He looks at how everyone from Mozart to Serena Williams got to the top of their respective fields through hard work and dedication and how kids can use these figures as inspiration on their way to becoming happy, successful adults.

    Winner of the British Book Award Children's Illustrated & Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2019

    Written by Malala for her peers, this is the girl behind the Nobel Prize-winning icon. Film tie-in edition with HE NAMED ME MALALA, released 6th November, which tells Malala's story from Nobel Peace Prize to netball courts. Malala is the most significant teenager of the twenty first century. She was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. This is the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did. It will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change. 'It's a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference' PW
