DescriptionWe all make mistakes - grown-ups and children alike. But little kids sometimes have trouble dealing with their mistakes, whether it's a piece of artwork they've torn by accident, or juice they've spilled on their favorite drawing. In this book, every page begins with a 'mistake' that ultimately unravels, lifts out, or pulls up to become a surprising work of beauty. Kids see firsthand as they go through the book that any smudge, smear or stain can lead to something absolutely marvelous - with a little imagination. Inspiring and inventive, this interactive board book teaches a valuable lesson: 'When you think you have made a mistake, think of it as an opportunity to make something beautiful!'

Reviews for Beautiful Oops!
I plan to have baby and started to buy books which might explore his/her interest in reading.This is one of the books I am looking for! by shirley cheng
The perfect book for the whole family. Tough enough to survive our 1 year old, full of interesting ideas for the adults and perfect for our 3 year old who is forever asking for new paper because of an imperfection added by her brother. High quaity, well written and fun. by Katie Black
This is one of my favourite children's books ever. As a teacher I have read it to many children, and they love it so much I often read it more than once :) It has a great message and is the basis for many art activity ideas. Love it!!! by Jemma Elkington
i'd buy it again for gifts
I bought this for my 3 year old and he loves it. He has nearly memorised it.
It's visually tasteful and well worded. My only hesitation was when my son thought he could make all rips beautiful (so we had to teach him not to tear books that had started with a rip).
but that was only drummed in once.
i recommend it for pre schoolers. by ben macaulay
Beautiful but overbearing
This book is amazingly beautiful, and the construction is classy, and very nice for a child to interact with. So if you love lovely things, buy this book.
For me though, the problem is the text. If this was a self-help book for adults, or even late teens, then it might be appropriate to address the theme of the book (you can change your mistakes into something beautiful) in such a direct manner. For kids though, subtly, and the chance to make their own discoveries as a story progresses is the most wonderful aspect of reading. As it stands now, the book is bombastic, and yet without changing a single aspect of the page design, it really could be enchanting if the words told a story with a little heart. by Katherine Knapsey
