So you made a mistake? No need to be embarrassed, afraid of trying again, or let your self-esteem plummet. The art of ''oops'' can be a beautiful thing, and this book proves it! Author Barney Saltzberg says, ''When you think you have made a mistake (and what kid or grown-up hasn't?), think of it as an opportunity to make something beautiful!'' With each vividly colored page, there are pop-ups, flaps, overlays, or some fun thing illustrating the message of the book: that if you spill, smudge, tear, or bend, it's not the end of the world. A bent paper can be a penguin's head; some spilled paint can become the shape of an elephant. There is beauty and magic in everything! And that is a concept that will serve both you and your child well in this world. (My grandson wants to read this book over and over again -- and need I mention that it is a must for all perfectionists?!)

Why This is an Employee Pick

What Barb, Customer Service Supervisor, says:

I love the philosophy and presentation of this interactive book. Each page is bright and cheery with primary color illustrations and lift-the-flap and fold-out surprises on every page. There are no mistakes in life; just occurrences that may not have been exactly what you had originally planned. These "mistakes" are blessings in disguise as they can easily be tweaked to create something wonderful. This is true for many things in life, not just artwork. That is what I love about this book. It inspires creativity and promotes a healthy philosophy on life. When given lemons, make lemonade.
