Win two brilliant confidence-boosting books

Here's how you can get your hands on two books to help older children improve their self-esteem and dare to be brilliant at (almost) anything.

“Children will enter a world where things are changing faster than ever before. This book is about helping them to find their inner passion, curiosity, and confidence to reach their potential – and to thrive. I have always believed that mindset matters more than anything else when it comes to happiness and success.”
- Matthew Syed

Matthew Syed is a two-time Olympian turned mindset writer who has written a string of books for adults aimed at achieving success at work and in life, and adopting a positive attitude to failure.

In his two books for older children, You Are Awesome and Dare To Be You, he focuses on finding ways to help children believe that they can do anything they put their minds to whilst tackling feelings of self-doubt and low self-esteem.

Perfect for teens navigating the tricky world of young adulthood, Syed's books aim to boost confidence and self-belief and help stop worrying about fitting in.
