You Are Awesome
You Are Awesome Journal
- Matthew Syed -
The Professor is very excited about Matthew Syed's books:
You Are Awesome.
Because, let's face it, you are! But it so easy to forget when you are living your day to day life.
We are so often made to believe that unless you are "born with a talent" then you might as well pack up.
Well, good news...Matthew Syed is here to give you the pep-talk you've been waiting for!! Everyone who is good at something, has had experiences of failing at it first! Matthew goes through the different "mindsets" that either stop you or help you move forward, he tells of people we admire and their inspiring journey and gives great tips and exercises to keep your eye on the ball (whatever you choose that ball to be!)
The journal is a perfect tool to put to practice what you have learned...because learning about it is important but turning it into an action will really help to make these new skills your own!
As advised by Matthew: take it step by step...and this book and journal will help you not just to find your confidence and move towards your dream, but they will make it fun too!

Tiger-Tiger is it True?
- Byron Katie -
"Tiger-Tiger, Is It True? is a story about a little tiger who thinks that his whole world is falling apart: his parents don't love him, his friends have abandoned him, and life is unfair. ... This is a heart-warming story with a powerful message that can transform the lives of even very young children."
Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears
- Emily Gravett -
"Young children will identify with the little mouse who uses the pages of this book to document his fears - from loud noises and the dark, to being sucked down the plughole. Packed with details and novelty elements including flaps, die-cuts and even a hilarious fold-out map, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears by Emily Gravett is an extraordinary, award-winning picture book."
Emily's website also has activities that go with the book, so worth to check out!
