Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kids loved this! I had read this story to my class and they all loved it! A girl who never makes mistakes shows kids that it is okay to make mistakes and that no one is perfect. This book is ideal for hitting a problem on the head without really telling the kids the issue. It definitely drop the seed for the kids to think about. Great book, great idea and great topic to talk about with how society is now a days and the pressure that kids feel.Great book! make sure to add this to your reading list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mistakes are a Part of Learning This book is great to promote a risk taking environment in your classroom. It caught my attention because making mistakes is what keeps some English students from speaking aloud in class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Important Message This is an important story for all the "perfectionists" out there (myself included). As a teacher, I believe perfectionism is on the rise, which puts undue and unnecessary pressure on kids who can't appreciate a good effort because it's not perfect and who don't know what it means to "do your best." This can lead to social and emotional problems and this book provides excellent points for discussion to help kids learn that it is neither necessary nor realistic to expect to be perfect or do things perfectly. The illustrations are great and provide a way for younger readers to "read" the story on their own.
