Introducing the BE Books®

As parents turned publishers, we wrote our thought-provoking personalised children’s books to help a child’s understanding of their developing character. They’ll journey to thrilling new worlds, discover hidden life-lessons around today’s many challenges, and return better informed to everyday life.

Simply choose your book by a value you think is important, or by the theme of the adventure story. Either way, we know the little hero will learn by being at the heart of their own bite-sized morality tale.

How they work
Be Held™
Personalisation with Purpose

By placing a child at the heart of their own fantastical tale, our books create maximum engagement throughout the journey to ensure their personalised story’s hidden benefits are discovered.

Be Held™
Two-Tier Storylines

Each BE Book is created around one unique child and two parallel stories. The first is an adventure-filled quest, the other an everyday scenario – the relevance of which becomes clear as the story reaches its conclusion.

Be Held™
Storytelling Progress Scale

Every BE Book has a simple-to-follow progress scale running through its pages. This allows parents and children to follow the hero’s positive development as the personalised journey unfolds.

Be Held™
Real World Transition

Our transition is the dramatic point where our readers switch from one parallel story to another, transporting the hero from personalised wish-fulfillment quest to relatable everyday scenario.

Be Held™
Real World Reprise

Once the everyday scenario is finally revealed, an easy-to-follow timeline allows the child to retrace their footsteps. Creating a unique opportunity for the parent to explain or discuss the relevance of each touchpoint.
