Sometimes we can feel like we are not good enough. That we don’t belong. Or that we want to be more like our friends.

In this empowering guide, Sinead Burke draws on her own experiences and encourages young readers to believe in themselves, have pride in who they are and use their voice to make the world a fairer, more inclusive place. From the power of being different, to celebrating the things you love about yourself and helping others do the same, this is a brilliantly inspirational handbook for breaking the mould and finding your place in the world. ‘A very important book encouraging us all to celebrate the uniqueness and gift of our own and others’ differences, while recognising all of that which we share in common.’ – Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland

Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas

Mr Mole sometimes wishes that he could skateboard as well as his friend. Mr Mole’s friend wishes that he could sing as well as Mr Mole! We are all so very different but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t equals. Mr Mole is going to write a list of all of the things that he is good at and celebrate them. He can share a skill with a loved one, teach a friend about one of his interests. Mr Mole loves that he can share so many different experiences because he is proud of who he is.

Larry's Learning Outcomes

Larry thinks that older children will love exploring this book independently so that they can learn more about themselves and how amazing they are in their differences. Younger children would benefit from sharing this book with an adult and discussing the issues that it addresses. Learning to love yourself is a complicated topic but one of the most important that we can learn.
