Beautiful Oops!

February 4, 2019 - Less than a minute read

By Barney Saltzberg

A fun, interactive book pop-up book that celebrates making mistakes!  With each turn of the page, we see how an “oops” becomes an opportunity for creativity, or a “happy accident” if you will.  A torn piece of paper isn’t so bad – not when it becomes the mouth of a big green alligator!  Did you spill a drip of paint on your paper?  Don’t worry, it can become something neat!  This book, with all of its smudges, smears, tears and holes, celebrates the growth mindset that we want to support in all young children so that they learn to embrace mistakes as opportunities!
