Posted on 10th August 2023

HOW TO TALK SO PEOPLE WILL LISTEN (And Sound Confident Even When You’re Not) By Just Voices’ Lizzie Waterworth is out on 7 September!

A fun and accessible book to help children feel confident about talking to people, from cartoon voiceover artist Lizzie Waterworth and friends.

A BAFTA nominated voice artist of award-winning cartoons, including the lead role of Horrid Henry, Lizzie Waterworth knows all about the power of the voice. Her debut book, How to Talk So People Will Listen is aimed at 7-11 year olds and offers practical advice to help children find their voice and boost confidence.

Whether it’s answering a question in front of the class, addressing a big audience, or talking via phone or on screen, public speaking can be uncomfortable (for most adults, too!). This book will give young people the tips and tricks to regulate those nerves, make themselves
heard, and own the room.

With tips from voice experts including Stephen Fry and Ben Shires, and takeaways from Lizzie’s own experiences, How to Talk So People Will Listen will help children feel more comfortable and confident when speaking aloud or meeting someone new. Learning to sound confident in these situations is a major life advantage.

Having voiced characters from video games, toys, and shows including CBeebies’ Alphablocks, EMMY-nominated Mush-Mush & The Mushables, Lizzie has drawn on her years of experience as a voice artist to offer top tips and advice for effective communication in an open, fun and accessible way. From how to combat nerves and breathing exercises, to the benefits of smiling and the power of eye contact, How to Talk So People Will Listen will help readers take control of their voice.
