Be Your Best Self Book Review

Something that I have always struggled with is self-confidence, loving who I am and being comfortable in my own skin. 

I'm very conscious of this fact and it is something that I don't want my own children to have a problem with. At the moment I see them growing into beautiful, independent girls but I know that there could be times in their lives when they struggle with self doubt.

Be Your Best Self is a fantastic book that I was sent recently, aimed at kids aged eight and upwards, the title itself is automatically appealing.


To be your best self means loving who you are, feeling confident in your own skin and achieving things that you want to do

This book comes from an exciting pair of authors. Danielle Brown who is a double paralympic gold medallist and five time world champion in archery (my children have a keen interest in archery as their dad does this in his spare time) and Nathan Kai who is the world's youngest published self-development author and member of MENSA!

An awe inspiring duo don't you think.

Split into smaller sections, this unique book provides a great insight into all things YOU. 

Packed with tips and advice, motivation and an abundance of positivity. I found Be Your Best Self to be a mood-boosting book which was perfect for children and adults too.


How can I be my best self?

Thoroughly thought provoking. This is not your typical book, this is a life tool, a handy resource that can get you through tough times.

Each section is filled with vibrant illustrations and personal messages from the authors, you get the feeling that they are passionate about what they say and really do want to help.

What I really liked is the fact that it isn't a book simply telling you what to do, it asks questions of the reader and gets them to really think about what they can achieve, the goals that they wish to set and ultimately what they want to gain from reading the book.


And inspirational guide for young people who are searching for an answer to the question; "How can I be my best self?".

With inspirational quotes dotted throughout, this is a book that you can dip in and out of, giving you a sense of calm and growth mindset each and every time you pick it up.

This is a book I'd like to see used in schools. It is one that will help children thrive in whatever environment they find themselves in. 

Be Your Best Self is an empowering book that gets children to believe in themselves and what they can achieve. 

Refreshing and exciting, a book for the age in which we live in.


  1. This does sound like a really good book for tweens and teens and a good resource for schools. I'm lucky that all of my kids are confident in themselves and their abilities, so we have never had any problems with self confidence.

  2. This sounds a really positive book. I'm sure my boys could benefit from it


I love hearing from my readers so please feel free to leave comment.
