My Favorite Book For Gifting....

If you read my blog regularly, it is no secret that I am HUGE fan of book.  I love, love, love to read and love to share books with my children.  I also love hearing (and giving!) book suggestions for  the kids and for myself.  I am definitely "that" person in the bookstore handing out unsolicited book advice (sorry!). 

Last night at story time with A&W I read them what is, quite  possibly, my favorite book to gift to children AND adults.  Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg is a stunning, unique book celebrating the power of making a "mistake".  Each page shows a perceived "mistake" in art and shows how it is transformed into something wonderful.  This is books is brilliantly done and is a excellent reminder to people of ALL ages that life's mistakes can become amazing opportunities.   This book is always on my graduation and birthday party gift list.

I found this fun video which shows the pictures and has a song to the words.  Just a note....I don't sing the words because my singing voice is considered torturous once my children reach the age of one (or the age in which they can use their hands to cover my mouth!)...


Beautiful Oops is one of my favorites because of the beautiful message as well as the wonderful interactive aspect.  If you are looking for a special gift this one fits the bill for any age. You can buy it for just $6.79 from Amazon today (a steal!)...
