What is Learn to Affirm?

Learn to Affirm is an activity book that teaches affirmations through an array of activities that reinforce self-belief. Learn to Affirm aims to encourage girls and boys to think positively about themselves, notice their unique and incredible attributes, and develop unshakeable confidence! 

This book contains affirmations, writing tasks, reading pages, colouring and drawing activities, stickers and free rip & keep bookmarks! Learn to Affirm was made particularly with black children in mind, so there are many relatable cultural references throughout and opportunities to learn about inspirational Black British women and men. Each activity inside prompts positive thoughts about self.

Recommended for ages 4-10 years old, but each child is different and develops at their own pace, so there’s something inside to be enjoyed by all ages! Activities are designed to be worked through with a trusted adult or older person – a Book Buddy! 

Learn to Affirm aims to:

  • Encourage children to think and feel positively about themselves.
  • Encourage children to think about positive role models in their life, and consider how they are similar to them.
  • Provide opportunities to learn about inspirational Black women and men in positions of power/success, providing positive representation.
  • Assist in the development of self-assurance and resilience through self-talk.
  • Assist in the unlearning of conditioning and learn how to apply self-love into everyday behaviours and thought patterns.
  • Provide a bonding tool for parents/care/family members and children.
  • Teach core beliefs through fun activities that appeal to kids and keep them entertained, whilst moulding their mindset through repetition, leading to healthy habits. 

 We currently have two editions of Learn to Affirm, one for girls and one for boys.



Why was Learn to Affirm created?

The initial launch of Learn to Affirm, for girls, was inspired by own childhood experiences.  I’ve been challenged by bullying, low self-esteem & self-image, unhealthy eating behaviours, self-harm, and diagnoses of depression & social anxiety. I recognise societal pressures/environment were huge factors in these challenges, but now looking back as an adult with a full understanding on the importance of confidence in self, I realise that having positive core beliefs would have made these challenges a lot more bearable. Naturally, I felt drawn to create a product that encourages healthy practices at a much younger age. I believe it’s important for children to build self-assurance, and to learn how to be gentle and loving towards themselves, and I think this is PARTICULARLY important for black children in a world that is not always so kind to black women and black men. Essentially, I wanted to create a product that younger me needed.
