My Mummy is a Footballer is a children's book that inspires children by helping them see that their ambitions are not limited by gender.

Told through the eyes of a child, you’ll learn all about life with a footballer mum, from matchday fun to doing the school run!

We aim to publish the book on 8th March 2021,and get free copies into 500 schools.

Butterfly Books was founded by brother and sister duo Kerrine Bryan and Jason Bryan. 

Kerrine is an electrical engineer and remembers the misconceptions and lack of knowledge about engineering as a profession when she was at school. 

She saw children’s books as a good way of communicating to kids a positive message about all kinds of professions that are suffering diversity issues.

It’s important that both children and parents understand that all sorts of jobs are available and accessible to them – no matter what gender they are or what background they come from – and that the opportunity is there for the taking if they apply themselves, work hard and want it enough. The world is their oyster.

Kerrine and Jason are the co-authors of the books, which are illustrated by the talented artist Marissa Peguinho.
