Our perception of ourselves, and our abilities will determine not only the way we feel, but what we think we are able to achieve. Learning to talk to ourselves in a positive way will shape our life experiences in an empowering way and help to develop a growth mindset.


This is a book about positive self-talk, related to children through the fascinating features of creatures. Let’s find out more about ourselves, our values, and the world of unusual creatures!


Using positive self-talk, children learn the skills needed in order to develop a healthy self-image and identity. Creature Features uses animal characteristics to compare and explore ideas of individuality, beauty, courage, tenacity, caring, and sharing. The close-up photographs and simple text assist teachers and children identify and express their own strengths. Each page can be the source of a focus lesson on a particular attribute.


Providing models for inner self-talk enables children to develop self-awareness, regulate their emotions, organise their ideas, predict and anticipate situations and responses. A child’s physical and psychological resilience is enhanced as a positive inner dialogue builds coping skills.


The photographs and comparisons in Creature Features will be a great source of inspiration for individual writing, art projects, and discussions as children identify their own positive personal attributes and build self-esteem and confidence.
