About the Book
Motivate Man, based on real-life Aussie YouTubers Elijah and Crumpet, introduces the reader to a person living with Down syndrome in a positive way, leading to questions and learning about diversity and inclusion, which is good for everyone.
Motivate Man is based on real-life YouTubers Elijah and Crumpet, who live in Queensland, Australia. Together they have fun making their show to educate and entertain audiences around the world.
In this book Crumpet is struggling to motivate himself and requires some help. Elijah (a.k.a. Motivate Man) is ready to help Crumpet with wise words of encouragement. He guides Crumpet through the challenge he is facing and helps him to complete the task.
Motivate Man is not only an entertaining and beautiful book for children and adults alike, it also introduces the reader to a person living with Down syndrome in a positive way. This will hopefully then lead to questions and learning about diversity and inclusion, which is good for everyone.
'I love this book! Motivate Man celebrates children with diverse learning needs as capable and competent. It focuses on what they can do not what they can't do. We need more books like this that highlight overcoming everyday challenges with humour and a sense of fun. Great messages for growing people!'
