The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes

If there is one book you read to your little ones this year - this is it!!! The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein is "just what the doctor ordered" for us perfectionists!! Too many little people live with too much pressure to be perfect - whether self-inflicted or put on them by others - they need to be assured that mistakes are normal. And this book is perfect for showing them how mistakes can be normal AND even funny!! Pett's illustrations are wonderful at capturing the feelings of the kids in the book - they are simple and yet full of emotion.

Here is what the publisher says:

The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes is the delightful story about Beatrice Bottomwell, a girl who prides herself on being perfect, until she’s not. She is a nine-year-old girl who has never (not once!) made a slip-up. But one day she does the unthinkable—she makes her first mistake! Not only that, she makes it in the most public way possible. Will the mistake be the end of her life? Or could it end up being a lot of fun?
(And I wholeheartedly agree!!)

Thank you, Pett and Rubinstein, for showing us perfectionists that it's ok to NOT be perfect all the time!! Where was this book when I was a kid anyway!?!?!?

*I was sent this book as a review copy by the publisher.
