Ozzie is very excited about the art contest at school. His teacher reminds him to read the instructions, but Ozzie is too excited. He works on his masterpiece all weekend. Back at school on Monday, he is very disappointed to learn that his art project has only received honorable mention. But his teacher points out that while his goat is very well drawn, the instructions say to draw a boat. Ozzie learns a very valuable lesson about paying attention and following the rules. He also learns about accepting situations and fixing mistakes.
Children will love the playful pictures that help illustrate the story. The message in the story is perfect for young children and students who are having a hard time understanding the importance of listening. The multi-level message will teach the lessons of listening, paying attention, and not complaining about our mistakes. My children enjoyed the story, especially the way Ozzie adapted once he learned from his mistake.
I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.

Love this book! The whimsical illustrations drew me in right away. Lots of little details in the drawings that appear the more times you look at the images. Ozzie is a fun character with a style all his own. And what he learns from the art contest is a simple, but highly important lesson that even the youngest readers can relate to. Highly recommend!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
