From the international football icon, activist and author of You Are a Champion comes another volume to inspire and energise young readers, helping them to find their voices and use their assertiveness to achieve beneficial goals.
One person isn't going to change the world, but your voice can make a huge difference.
From Marcus Rashford MBE and Carl Anka, the bestselling authors of You Are a Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be, comes the eagerly-awaited inspiring and positive follow-up, You Can Do It: How to Find Your Team and Make a Difference.
Marcus uses the power of his voice to shine a light on the injustices that he cares passionately about, and now he wants to help YOU find the power in yours! From surrounding yourself with the right team, to showing kindness to those around you, to celebrating and championing difference, You Can Do It shows you that your voice really does matter and that you can do anything you put your mind to. You don't have to be an International footballer to make a difference - even the smallest changes can have the biggest impact.
Packed with more inspiring stories from Marcus's own life, brilliant advice, and top-tips from social justice educator Shannon Weber, this book will show you how to use your voice and make a difference in this world.
Shows kids how to:
- Be kind to yourself - you can't change the world unless you look after yourself first!
- Be kind to other people
- That there's no such thing as normal - and it's GOOD to be different
- Celebrate and champion difference
- Use your voice to make a change
- Bounce back
- Appreciate the squad
- Always be a team player

Praise for You Are A Champion:
'Marcus has spoken for, and inspired, millions of children who are from similar backgrounds to him, helping them to see that your current situation does not have to determine where you are going. That is so so powerful.' - Siya Kolisi, South African rugby captain and world cup winner
'It makes perfect sense that he [Marcus] should have written a motivational self-help book for kids (with Carl Anka). Conversational enough for the reluctant reader, but actually packed full of top-flight sports psychology and no little depth, You Are a Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be also marks the start of a book club aimed at disadvantaged kids' - Guardian
'It's down to earth, practical, and written with his trademark warmth and empathy. As he says: "When you believe in yourself, incredible things can happen." Every young person should read this book.' - Daily Express
'[Marcus] shares life lessons and practical advice he wishes he had read as a boy, encouraging reading, hard work, team-building, confidence and humility. Enlivened with anecdotes, diagrams and silhouettes, this is clear, sensible and inspiring for any age.' - The Times
'Written with journalist Carl Anka, this is an empowering read touching on the themes of building confidence, setting goals and finding your passion. Rashford starts the book by saying it's one he wished he had growing up, and many adults reading alongside their children will agree with this sentiment. It gives an interesting insight into Marcus Rashford's personality - his love for puns, tendency to play 'knock a door and run' as a child and just why his first nickname was Shot - making it a thoroughly enjoyable read for both children and adults alike.' - Independent
'A thoroughly enjoyable read for both children and adults alike.' - Irish Examiner
'An invaluable read for older readers as well as young football fans, this is a wry, moving, and memorable book for finding your way in the world.' - BookTrust
'There's serious stuff here, but delivered in such an accessible manner that all children will relate to it.' - Daily Mail
