The Girl who never made mistakes book review

Beatrice Bottomwell, the heroine of "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes," does everything right, from always wearing matching socks to winning her elementary school's annual talent show. Her record is so pristine, in fact, that she won't allow herself to enjoy ice skating with her friends, in case she slips. Naturally, this sets her up for a fall. 

I love this book... I feel it really helps to teach children, and maybe even remind adults that no matter how perfect someone may seem, that really every one makes mistakes. As a mother of 2 little girls, that I know do the best they can, but do make mistakes  it helped me to remember that I am not not perfect either. 

The Girl who never makes mistakes is also the perfect to story to help reassure my 8 year old that she is perfectly fine, when she makes a mistake because  unlike Beatrice no one thinks she is perfect, and never makes mistakes. This book has become one of our favorite books to read together my girls and me. I would love to thank Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein for such an inspiring story.

The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes is available on September 30 and is reasonably priced at $14.99 for a hard copy.
