    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
