The 7-day Self-esteem Super-booster

Here’s a little test for you. How many of these statements do you think are true? To have high self-esteem you need to

  1. Wear cool clothes
  2. Have loads of friends
  3. Be good-looking
  4. Live in a normal family
  5. Like being yourself
  6. Be sporty
  7. Think you’re better than everyone else

The answer is, only one! You can be poor and still have high self-esteem, you can be plain. You can have two left feet on the football field and seventeen assorted step-sisters. Self-esteem is nothing to do with how you look or what you’ve got – it’s purely a question of how you feel about yourself (yes – the only one that’s true is number 5)

This book has a choice of small tasks to do every day, custom-made to boost your self-esteem.

The tone and style of this book is positive, strong and easy to follow… and the activities are achievable for a wide ability-range. The author clearly understands how children can be helped…   Times Educational Supplement

This book is really helpful and funny…   Teen Titles
