Tough Like Mum

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Lana Button is a children’s author, educator and entertainer who is passionate about supporting, encouraging and entertaining young children. She writes picture books that support empathy, self-reliance, resilience and anti-bullying behaviors.

Lana’s latest picture book is Tough Like Mum. In this tender exploration of a mother-daughter relationship, Kim and her mother learn that in order to support and truly take care of each other, they need to be tough — and that sometimes being tough means showing vulnerability and asking for help.
