Happy Holidays with...Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg!

I have a book that every kid should have....Beautiful Oops by Barney SaltzbergBeautiful Oops sends the very powerful message that everyone makes mistakes, mistakes are OK to make and that what appears to be a mistake might just be the beginnings of something wonderful.  Isn't that a lesson we all want our children to learn?  Well, this book does an amazing job of relaying that in way that is creative and fun.

Barney Saltzberg, the effervescent spirit behind Good Egg, offers a one-of-a-kind interactive book that shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion “telescope”—each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.

The smudge becomes the face of a bunny, a crumpled ball of paper turns into a lamb’s fleecy coat—celebrate the
oops in life.  

In a word?  Amazing.  Now I know the description specifically says young readers but this book could be for anyone in need of a reminder of  the value of a "mistake".  I think I enjoy this touching book as much as A&W do.  The illustrations are vibrant and engaging and the pop-ups make for a highly interactive read.

Beautiful Oops is now one of my favorites because of the beautiful message as well as the wonderful interactive aspect.  Please pick up a copy of this for the children on your holiday list...

Thanks for the chance to win!
