What are we reading
It looks at bullying from all angles, what’s going on for the victim, the bully and even the teachers! The best bit it’s hilariously funny and there is a great ending. Think David Walliams but funnier! Fantastic for any primary aged children but absolutely perfect for those going up to high school.
“This is laugh out loud at any age, great to read with the kids and gives you a real insight to bullying in a light-hearted way – 5*”
“I really loved the characters and all the fart jokes, am I allowed to say that? – 5*”
I think you just did.
The Body Hoax: Stop Believing in Fantasy Bodies
“This was so thought provoking, I read it with my teenage daughter in mind but feel like I got a lot of out it for myself”
Don't Go knocking at the Circus Door
“This is a perfect bedtime story, leaves them and you with a warm and fuzzy feeling before bed – such a positive message”
You Are a Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be
We bought this for our 11 year old on his last day of primary and he just loved it. Not a huge football fan but as a therapist I loved, loved, loved the message. It shows kids how to:
– Be comfortable with who you are, you can’t be a champion until you’re happy being you!
– Dream big
– Practise like a champion
– Get out of your comfort zone and learn from your mistakes
– Navigate adversity in a positive way
– Find your team (not just football team)
– Use your voice and stand up for others
– Never stop learning
“This is more than another footballer book, it’s a great resource for kids”
I would love to have Marcus on my podcast, maybe one day but for now you can buy a copy here
The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse
If you look at my amazon account and see how many times I have bought this, we are onto double figures! I often buy this for my students. It doesn’t matter the age, it is a message for everyone. The illustrations are beautiful but such heartwarming quotes and affirmations.
Someone has said “A book of hope in uncertain times” Kids everywhere are often uncertain and this for me is like a map to that hope. Enjoy
“This is a beautiful book, one that i could read over and over with the kids and never tire of (which is a rarity!)”
“I always read this when I feel sad and it helps me feel much better”
