Description

A shy kid's guide to thriving in their own (quiet) way. Do you sometimes feel afraid of talking in front of people, making a mistake or saying the wrong thing? While everywhere else you look there are loud, confident people? You're not alone. Ben Brooks also grew up as a shy child (so much so that he'd rather have cut his own hair or spend a week at a Silent Retreat then have to speak to other people). But he soon realised that being quiet doesn't make you strange or wrong or boring. In fact, being shy can give you great skills such as listening, kindness and compassion. It's something to embrace and be proud of. In this book, Ben introduces readers to some of the most famous, talented and brilliant shy people - including Charles Darwin, David Bowie, Greta Thunberg, Rosa Parks, Beyonce and Emma Watson - who used their special quietness to achieve awesome things, and he shares his tips for growing up shy in a world that can sometimes feel, well, LOUD. Because you don't have to be loud to be liked, and you definitely don't have to be loud to make an impact.

More on this Book

Drawing on the narrative of his own life growing up as painfully shy child, Ben Brooks explores what it is to be 'quiet' - what it means, what it can feel like and how we can embrace it - and debunks some of the myths about what it means to be a shy person.Around 60% of adults identify as 'shy' - just one of the facts that Ben uses to 'normalise' shyness, outlining stories of famously shy people from the past and the present - Charles Darwin, David Bowie, Greta Thunberg, Rosa Parks, Beyonce, Emma Watson - revealing the stories of successful adults who grew up shy but didn't let it get in the way of their passion and creativity. Shy kids often have great innate skills - listening, creativity, kindness, compassion and problem-solving - so being shy or quiet is not something to 'outgrow' but something to embrace and be proud of. Unique to the children's market, this book will help shy kids to thrive in their own (quiet) way ...
