Our 10 year old son is an avid reader but even when he was given this book for his birthday he didn’t make it beyond the first few pages. He quickly lost interest.

However this audiobook totally captured him from the beginning. Matthew Syed reads it brilliantly and kept him engaged from the start to the very end.

Now our son talks about growth mindset and not being kid average, but being kid awesome.

He always used to say things like “I’m rubbish at that”... “I’m going to come last” etc. But not anymore.

Thanks so much to Matthew Syed for writing a book that really does engage with the young reader and helps them understand how to build confidence and give them a positive attitude and truly become that “kid awesome”.
