Have you ever felt you should act a certain way or do certain things just because you're a boy?
Be Your Own Man encourages boys and men to embrace their vulnerability and put their hand up for help. Every boy deserves to feel free to express their emotions and be completely themselves without apology.
What this book does.
The concept of self-love is introduced and boys are shown through a diverse representation of bodies, ethnicities and abilities that all bodies are good bodies.
Seeks to dissolve the toxic parts of the traditional masculine identity to make way for a new generation of boys who feel free to be who they truly are.
Normalises 'softer' behaviours — such as sensitivity, creativity, asking for help and caring for others as valuable and essential human traits.
Portrays a diverse cast of unique but relatable characters, each depicting a wide range of cultural backgrounds, abilities, and behaviour
