Beautiful Oops! is the book my perfectionist childhood self needed (OK, I still need it). It’s a book for artists and creators and those who feel like they are always too far from the image in your mind. It’s a book that pushes the notion of failure aside, replacing it with a challenge to make something wonderful from the mistake (classic lemons into lemon aid). The book itself is a structural work of art with 3D elements, pop-up surprises, and peek-a-boo images that your imagination unfold with the book.
ALL teachers and parents should have this one in their arsenal.
