What We Are All About

Golden Oak Press is passionate about creating books that inspire hope, resilience and positive self-worth for all ages. Our titles carry strong, timeless messages that help us to stand tall, to believe in our sense of purpose and to pick ourselves up when we stumble and fall. With a celebration of creativity, kindness and diversity, the core themes we champion are:


The unique strengths we all possess


Whoever, wherever we are, we all possess unique strengths. Once we discover and believe in these, we can 'walk our purpose', sharing these gifts with others, spreading a little joy along the way. Enthusiasm and happiness are contagious!


Our capacity for courage and determination


With imagination, support and self-determination, creative solutions present themselves. In the face of adversity, these solutions enhance new effort, courage and the capacity to try again. 


Life as a creative adventure


Like every other human being, sometimes we will stumble and fall. As we learn to perceive life as an adventure, showing ourselves and others, understanding, compassion and self-kindness, these life experiences catalyse the discovery of unexpected resources. As we bounce back and share this adventure, so our life becomes a journey of new possibilities.
