Back of Book: Meet Beatrice Bottomwell: a nine-year-old girl who has never (not once!) made a mistake. She never forgets her math homework, she never wears mismatched socks, and she ALWAYS wins the yearly talent show at school. In fact, Beatrice holds the record of perfection in her hometown, where she is known as The Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes. Life for Beatrice is sailing along pretty smoothly until she does the unthinkable–she makes her first mistake. And in a very public way!
My Review: I have learned that even in Kindergarten children can be perfectionists and when they don’t get something right they completely fall apart. I have to remind them that no one is perfect and that everyone makes mistakes. Beatrice is a girl who does everything perfect until one day she doesn’t. Then she realizes that it can be okay to not be perfect all the time. This is an excellent story to read to any child who thinks that they must perform perfectly at all times.
