The Book of Mistakes by Corinna Luyken - ADVISABLE

Luyken, Corinna The Book of Mistakes.  PICTURE BOOK.  Dial (Penguin), 2017.  $19.

Where others might see a mistake that needs to be thrown away, Corinna Luyken instead sees an opportunity.  Follow the girl with the extra-long neck.  What are her possibilities?  Endless.  

Luyken’s imagination takes flight in a cute book about celebrating mistakes as growth, instead of freaking out.  I think this is something that we have neglected to teach our kids and we should probably read lots of books to them about the value of mistakes.  Plus, I’d love to attend the imaginary celebration inside this book!
