Be Someone Hardcover Book


Be Someone encourages your child to choose what kind of person they want to be.

Do they want to be someone who makes others feel sad, or someone who likes to help others feel glad? The sooner our children realise the potential they have to make a difference in the world around them, the better. Yes, our children may be young, but what a perfect time for them to grasp the concept of the power of their choices.

The message in Be Someone is suitable for children of all ages. Be Someone is great to read to children from approx. 2 years old. As the children progress and are able to read to themselves, they can continue to soak up the positive statements that Be Someone speaks directly to them.

In the home and learning environments, the message that Be Someone brings can be used as a springboard into important conversations with children from a young age. As the children move into the pre-teen years, the level of conversation and learning will continue to grow. 


Who will you be?  That’s up to you! You can choose!

This book is about being the very best you can be.  What a wonderful start in life this is.  Kids can choose how they respond and this wonderful book highlights their choices. “You could be someone who likes to make others feel glad. Or you could be someone who makes others sad”

This book provides an excellent talking point for parents and carers struggling with a child’s behaviour. It’s a read out loud book that brings questions and time for discussing how things are going at home.  What choices is the child making?  How do those choices make both of you feel?
