during the first days of school, i read this book aloud to our
first, second, and third-grade students.
beatrice bottomwell has fans outside the door in the morning.
she's won the local talent show with her juggling act three years in a row, but she won't go skating on the frozen pond.
what if she fell?
the story and illustrations are charming, but the message is key. if you know a little perfectionist or perhaps a child who easily works above grade level but hates to try difficult things for fear of making an error, this book is helpful.

the beauty of imperfection.
joy to you.
