Main message: Mistakes are opportunities

One of those books that makes adults think as much as kids, this board book takes what looks like a mistake — bent corners, holes, scraps of paper — then uses flaps and pull out sections to show that with a little imagination they can be something beautiful. It's a really tactile, visual book with an almost scrapbook style that will really engage young readers.

This is a hardback book that measures 18 x 18 cm. It's great for all ages.

Looking for more books that encourage kids to learn from their mistakes? Check out Rosie Revere, Engineer who learns that failure is an important part of experimenting.
