To be your best self means loving who you are, feeling confident in your own skin and achieving your fullest potential.

 We all have different dreams, that’s one of the things that makes us unique. But whatever your goals are, the skills you’ll need to achieve them are the same. This book can help you to practise these core skills and provides a survival kit for dipping into when extra help or motivation is needed.


No need to worry if you don’t yet know what your big goals are, this book helps you work that out. Maybe you just need some tips for boosting your confidence, staying positive or thriving in everyday life. Looking after yourself is an important theme of the book whether that be eating healthy food and exercising, sleeping well, knowing how to deal with bullies or being kind to yourself.

Author Nathan Kai and Danielle Brown

Nathan had discovered a bit of a problem....


He was seven years old and he wanted a book for Christmas to help him turn his big ideas into a reality. He wanted to learn how to become the best version of himself so he could achieve some big goals and reach his fullest potential, but there was nothing out there. He and his mum visited lots of book stores and spent a lot of time searching online, and kept coming up empty handed. There were lots of personal development books out there for adults, but nothing to help children navigate the twists and turns of growing up which can sometimes feel overwhelming.


When attending a MENSA event, he met double Paralympic gold medallist Danielle Brown MBE. Nathan knew this was a great opportunity, and asked her whether she had written a book for children on how they could be the best they could be. When Danielle said no he then asked whether he could write one with her.


That was the start of an exciting journey, where Nathan and Danielle discussed, planned and wrote the very first book like this in the WORLD. Be Your Best Self provides a kit for self-growth, success and happiness, and facilitates the growth of emotional intelligence and positive mindsets. It's a recipe that empowers children to thrive, shine and be the very best they can be.
