I am always looking for books which have a message behind them for my daughter. I think that books are a wonderful way to start discussions about topics, especially those which are not always simple to discuss with young children. Discover the Determination in You – Adventures in Space is a great way to introduce the concepts of determination and perseverance to young children.

Perseverance is such a vital skill for children to learn, but it can be a tricky one to teach – I know my daughter becomes easily frustrated at times and I have found a number of books to highlight the importance of trying despite failure and of trying different things. One of these books is a wonderful book called The Most Magnificent Thing*, which gives a wonderful example of the amazing things we can accomplish if we keep trying.
Discover the Determination in You – Adventures in Space takes a more direct approach, even listing the steps to success. I also love the personalised element of the book, which sees your child in the story, so that they can be central to the story, and the lesson.
The illustrations are wonderful, and I love the space theme – my daughter loves all things relating to space so I knew that this personalised book from My Book Heroes* was going to be a big hit. As well as being able to add your child’s name to the book, you can also choose the avatar, which again appears in the illustrations. My daughter loves seeing herself on the page and I hope that it’s helped her to take in the lesson about perseverance and determination too.
I love personalised books, and I think that the range from My Book Heroes in a great one, as well as Discover the Determination in You there is also Discover the Courage in You and Discover the Leader in You. Each of the three books has different theme. I think that these book would make a really wonderful present for a young child. Discover the Determination in You was wonderfully fun to read and is very inspiring too. And you can use my discount code OSAL10 for 10% off your order from My Book Heroes too!
