MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! by Barney Saltzberg is a hands-on journal that’s designed to help young hands and minds turn an “oops” into art. The friendly green alligator—familiar to readers of Beautiful Oops!—prompts the reader to imagine the possibilities of a bent page.
Decorate a smudge. Play with splats and spills. Even complete a poem that was accidentally ripped in half.
MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS!
Filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages, the activities will challenge the reader’s sense of play as they draw in, paint on, tear up, smudge, and ultimately artistically wreck the book.
MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It’s about self-forgiveness and about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it’s about freedom—the freedom to be creative and follow curiosity wherever it goes. That’s a lesson to celebrate!
This is perfect for me and my kids! I just love this book. The concept, the thought, the artwork. It really works so well.
