About Niels van Hove
I'm a father of two girls and live with my wife in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a mental toughness advocate and started to write children's books to make a positive difference, promote conversation and help children learn about confidence, resilience and a positive & growth-mindset.
My first children's book My Strong Mind is based on real life stories from my two daughters, Poppy and Coco. I'm very proud it has been translated in to 11 languages.

Some children will be crying, some are snuggled up tight.
They all are looking forward, to a little kiss goodnight.
Some children sleep in busy cities…
Some in hills high or valleys down low…
Some sleep near sunny sand…
Some sleep near icy snow.
And all of those children, to everyone’s delight.
Will get from their parents, a little kiss goodnight!
Some children feel tired, eyes heavy as stones.
Some will be restless, with an itch in their bones.
Some children resist, they don’t want to let go.
Some laugh and giggle, and go with the flow.
What they all have in common, if it’s wrong or if it’s right.
They love their parents, to give a little kiss goodnight.
But you are my treasure, you’re mine in every way.
I will kiss you goodnight as long as I may.
Cause time keeps on flying and you’ll be grown soon.
Until the day comes, that you look up to the moon.
When you hold your baby, and stars are shining bright.
You’ll remember I was always there…
…to give a little kiss goodnight.
