Be Your Own Man
From the bestselling, award winning, author of Love Your Body.
You can be anything. You can be everything.
Have you ever felt you should act a certain way or do certain things, just because you're a boy
This book encourages young boys to broaden their ideas about what it means to be a boy, supporting them to feel free and proud to be who they truly are.
Every boy deserves to be themselves without apology, and know that being themselves now will make them the man they will become in the future
I have so many hopes for this book. I hope it will be a comfort to boys who don’t fit the narrow and outdated male stereotype. I hope it will inspire a boy to ask for help instead of ‘pushing those feelings deep down’. I hope it will reduce bullying and create communities of kindness. I hope it will help a boy to realise that their body allows them to experience life and that their body is not an object to be judged. I have so many hopes and dreams for this book and the truth is I’ll probably never know if they came true because I’m planting little seeds that I won’t be able to watch grow. But what a privilege it is to be able to be a planter of seeds
