Fall Off, Get Back On, Keep Going by Clare Balding - Activity Pack!
Hachette Children’s Group are offering 50 free activity packs to public libraries to celebrate the publication of Fall Off, Get Back On, Keep Going by Clare Balding. The first 10 libraries to sign up will also get a copy of the book!
'Falling off' is all part of life. The trick is to know how to dust yourself off, get back on, learn from your mistakes - and keep going!
Clare Balding, TV presenter, sportswoman and bestselling author has had some spectacular falls in her life - from being bullied at school and falling in with the wrong crowd, to last-minute hiccups and mistakes on live TV - so she knows what it takes to embrace your mistakes and move on from them!
With personal stories from Clare herself and from the lives of the people she most admires, children will discover how to develop courage in the face of tough situations. Find out how Charlotte Raubenheimer of South Africa completed a triathlon while in lockdown at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Marvel at the amazing story of US surfer Bethany Hamilton, who got back in the water just one month after she lost her arm in a shark attack, going on to win her first US national surfing competition two years later. Plus many more stories including that of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, US soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe, Dutch inventor Boyan Slat and Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
With fun, quirky illustrations from Jess Holm, the 10 chapters of Fall Off, Get Back On, Keep Going explore 10 character-traits - RESILIENCE, PATIENCE, CONFIDENCE, COURAGE, FLEXIBILITY, CREATIVITY, SPEAKING OUT, MOTIVATION, KINDNESS and KEEPING GOING - that can help children to learn to embrace their mistakes, own them, and move on from them.
The packs include:
- 1 x Activity Challenge Guide
- 1 x Poster
- 10 x Activity Sheet Sets (including 5 Activity Sheets), with further copies available to download for free

You can order these until 10 May (but they may sell out before this date).
