"This Is How I Do It" by Matt Lamothe (Chronicle Children's Books)

You're amazing, did you know that? If you start to think about all the things in your life that shape who you are, all the myriad amazing things, and write them down, what would that list be like if you read it back?

Here's your chance to find out in a truly brilliant book that's part non-fiction, part activity book, and part journal - and entirely fantastic!

"This Is How I Do It" by Matt Lamothe is the follow-up to his previous "This is how We Do It" title examining the lives of kids all around the world.

This time Matt needs your help - in fact you are the star of this book, along with 59 real kids from around the world who all share their daily lives through superb page spreads and a fantastic overall design.

Matt's idea is to draw out from the reader their own contributions to a bigger picture of how kids live their lives all around the planet. Some might feel they're rich and well off, and have everything they need. Some might feel they're poor, but manage to still live an active and amazing life nonetheless.

Let's take a dip inside this truly amazing and diverse book filled with stories all about you, and kids like you!

All the kids featured in this book are real kids living around the world. How cool is that!
Diversity and equality shines from every page, particularly this one
Even our favourite animal friends get a moment in the spotlight in this fab book
It's such a brilliant idea to let kids join in and interact with the book themselves. Chronicle really have published some of the most stunning titles this year and this is no exception.

Sum this book up in a sentence: A truly awesome idea to make kids the star of their own book, joining kids from around the globe in talking about themselves and their lives in detail.
