The book was released in 2019 and is about teaching children to be STRONG with their mind, words and heart.

“This delightful picture book explores the notion of how to be a strong boy. Rather than just using physical strength that often hurts others sometimes accidentally, Max learns better ways of being strong using his mind and his words. This is such an important message to share with all young children.” – Maggie Dent, parenting author, educator and resilience specialist

“What does ‘strong’ really mean in a world of faster, bigger, brighter? This book explains to young people in a simple language what ‘the other strong’ means and how it can positively affect people around us. “The Strongest Boy” can be a first step into clean masculinity”. – Gerold Mayr, Mankind Project QLD

“What a beautiful story to help children be the best they can be and make great choices with their friends. Max’s story shows children how small changes can make a huge difference.” – Dr Samantha Hornery, Learning Links Education Manager
