  • At the End of Holyrood Lane
    At the End of Holyrood Lane
    Flick is just like any other youngster. She loves to chase butterflies and jump in autumn leaves. But life at the end of Holyrood Lane is often violent and unpredictable due to the constant storms that plague her home, causing her to cringe with dread and flee whenever they strike. Flick tries her best to quell her fears and endure the storms' persistent wrath until, one day, with nowhere left to hide Flick summons the courage to face her fears by asking for help to overcome them. At the End of Holyrood Lane provides a sensitive glimpse into one aspect of domestic violence and how it can affect young lives. Designed to be visually arresting, emotionally incisive, and ultimately uplifting, it is a tale of anxiety shown through the eyes of a small child with an intense dislike for thunderstorms - a fear shared by many young children. This clever duality of meaning is able to evoke a gentle awareness for young readers who may be suffering their own domestic torment but who are too scared or unsure of how to seek help and shelter from their own storms, whatever their nature. This is the second book by the acclaimed author-illustrator team of Dimity Powell and Nicky Johnston, who specialise in handling difficult subjects with sensitivity and hope.

It represents the first time any scientist has placed value in the study not only of mental illness, but of 'mental wellness'. It's not about curing one's ills, but about exercising one's strengths and virtues in order to achieve what Seligman terms 'authentic happiness'. The life-changing lesson of Authentic Happiness is that, by assessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of genuine contentment and joy.

    Awesome Ends In Me: A Resilient ME(TM) Gratitude Journal for Kids:
    Stay focused. Keep calm. Be positive.

    Children are capable of extraordinary things...

    Adversity is a fact of life, but being resilient means they are better able to cope during hardships or challenges, and sometimes bounce back stronger than they were before.

    Resilience is more than just putting on a brave face, it is having the capacity to persevere and to recover quickly from difficulties - disappointments, setbacks, illness and tragedy.

    It is one of the best skills we can teach to our children.

    Helping ourselves and those we love survive through difficult times can seem like a distant dream. But imagine not just surviving but thriving. Becoming stronger and wiser through the experiences of everyday life. That is what building resilience is all about.

    Childhood is the perfect time to develop resilience and the Resilient ME(TM) guided gratitude journals are the perfect tool to start this journey.

    For ages 5-12 this journal not only teaches kids how to get the most out of practicing gratitude, but also has heaps of fun activities to help them build resilience and boost happiness, focus on what is important, stay calm when facing challenges and build a positive attitude..

    Kids can learn to manage emotions, create a growth mindset, focus on their strengths, create meaningful connections, and maintain healthy habits to live a happy life.

    A5 size (148 x 210mm) contains 108 pages and a soft cover.

    We can't always stop our kids facing challenges but we can give them the skills so that these challenges don't break them.

    And the best news?! Resilience can be learned through fostering a positive attitude, having the ability to regulate emotions, being able to focus on strengths rather than weaknesses, making meaningful connections and creating healthy habits. All features of our new resilience and gratitude journal.

  • Be Fearless
    Be Fearless
    In this nationally bestselling "must-read for leaders who are seeking an inspirational road map...in today's challenging climate" (Forbes), philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life the five Be Fearless principles common to the people and organizations that change the world.

    This book is a call to action for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

    When National Geographic Chairman Jean Case set out to investigate the core qualities of great change makers, past and present, from inventors to revolutionaries, she found five surprising traits all had in common. They weren't wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women chose to make a "big bet," take bold risks, learn from their failures, reach beyond their bubbles, and let urgency conquer fear.

    Throughout Be Fearless, Jean vividly illustrates these principles through storytelling-from her own transformational life experiences, to Jane Goodall's remarkable breakthroughs in understanding and protecting chimpanzees, to celebrity chef Jose Andres's decision to be a "first responder" and take his kitchen to the sites of devastating hurricanes to feed the hungry, to Madam C.J. Walker's vision to build a hair care empire that would employ thousands across the country, and more. She shares new insights to stories you might think you know-like Airbnb's tale of starting from scratch to transform the hospitality industry, to John F. Kennedy's history-making moonshot-gems from changemakers you've never heard of, and, in a new afterword, stories of people inspired to take action after reading the book.

    Be Fearless "is a welcome kick in the pants for anyone who feels stuck in their career" (Business Insider). Weaving together storytelling, practical tips, and inspiration, the book teaches you how to put the five fearless principles to work so that you too can spark the sorts of remarkable breakthroughs that change the world.
