May Book of the Month: The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett & Gary Rubinstein

The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes 
Written by Mark Pett & Gary Rubinstein
Illustrated by Mark Pett

Beatrice Bottomwell was perfect in every way. She always matched her socks, learns to ride a bike on her first try, remembers to be perfectly polite and always makes her bed. Beatrice never makes mistakes. One day, she has an ALMOST mistake at school. Which gets her worrying....what if she makes a mistake? That night was the Talent Show and her fear comes true. The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes, makes a mistake! Will she learn to love and laugh at life's little hiccups (or sneezes in this case)?  

There is very real pressure in this society for children, as well as adults, to strive for perfection. This story will hopefully help children realize that we can learn and laugh at imperfect moments and that it's okay to make mistakes. 

AAHHCHOOOO!!!! Beatrice's makes the mistake of grabbing the pepper instead of the salt for her juggling act in the Talent Show which causes her act to fall apart.What if we used pepper for a fun science experiment instead? Impress your preschoolers with this fun experiment.  So easy, they can do it themselves!
