Step Into Your Power: 23 Lessons on How To Live Your Best Life

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

The world can be tough to navigate for all of us, and childhood is full of potential difficulties, from conflicts with friends, bullies to understanding what’s happening in the world and obeying rules that they don’t necessarily understand or agree with.

In this wonderful book, aimed at older primary or younger secondary school children, author Jamia Wilson and Andrea Pippins, themselves both activists and passionate empower-ers of children, give a series of practical tips and explanations about ways that we can live our best lives, from self-care to making good choices, asking for help, finding a mentor, speaking our truth and asking for what we need.

Throughout the book, the authors include experiences from their own lives and from the lives of famous achievers from Nina Simone to Colin Powell to show children how to deal with difficulties and remain true to themselves.

This is a tremendously useful and necessary book that feels very timely. Its design is hugely appealing, modern and accessible, feeling cool and fashionable as well as taking children seriously. It’s the kind of book that you’d want all children to own, both as a reference for themselves and as something to talk about together.
