This book is so wonderful because it helps explain that children should not crumple every piece of paper with a small mistake, and to keep working until the "mistake" is incorporated into the scene. If children keep working, the picture may turn out beautifully. Keep trying! This is also good as a "green" lesson because it helps children understand paper should be conserved.
