    Man, where was this book when I was growing up  The perfect life

    Man, where was this book when I was growing up  The perfect life's o.k. to make a mistake.   Bring them on. Let's turn that mistake into an opportunity to be uber creative and explore all the possibilities where we can turn that blunder into a brand new discovery.  A spill on your clean, white sheet of paper can be morphed into a wild, crazy animal and an accidental tear in your paper can be turned into the mouth of a roaring alligator. The possibilities are endless if you just let your imagination run wild and follow through with your ideas. 

    Barney Saltzberg designed this interactive book to show young readers how to react in a positive and fun way when you make a mistake. (and we all make them)  The book is imaginative, creative and has a wonderful message to pass along.  "Beautiful  Oops!' is filled with the best in paper engineering techniques.  These pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes etc. give you a bird's eye view of how to transform a blooper into a magnificent work of art.   Saltzberg gives you permission to relax, not worry, and turn that oops into something you can be proud of and celebrate.   So go ahead, step out, take a chance, take a risk and remind yourself that everything you make or design, using your imagination, can become beautiful and have value in the art world.  

    This book is perfect for pre-schoolers (and adults alike), and comes in the form of a board book.  Mistakes are imminent,  heck, everyone makes them.  This book inspires us to re-focus and re-define our mistakes so we can once again turn them into something beautiful.
