Ever thought about what an amazing life a child could lead if their sense of self-belief didn’t disappear? Angela Bertram has and it’s known as Where All Amazing Things Start.
Bertram was inspired to write a book after she noticed the way her son Max looks at himself in the mirror or caught his reflection in a window and dances.
He just thinks he is amazing and I think that is such a beautiful thing, but unfortunately that fades at some point
“He just thinks he is amazing and I think that is such a beautiful thing, but unfortunately that fades at some point,” she said.
The book also has a positive body image message.
“I’ve always found that self-esteem and self-belief go hand-in-hand. It’s just about encouraging a positive perception of yourself and others,” she said.
The book is designed to be shared as a gift, with space to personalise, including the child’s dreams to ensure they become part of the story.
“I thought if it is to be given as a gift, it will always be a reminder to the child who receives it that whoever gave it to them believes in them too.’’
