(Short book though .....wish it were longer because it is so good!)
"Everyone who has ever said the word `oops' will be smiling when they see the masterpiece that Barney Saltzberg has created . . . funny and fun, Beautiful OOPS! is the best fit to give anyone, any age, anywhere, anytime." ~Jamie Lee Curtis
This is a delightful concept book for all ages, even though it is suggested for ages 3 and up. With bright vivid colors throughout children of all ages will love turning each page to find something fun or a little different to get their creative muse turning. If you have someone who loves art . . . this would be a fun book to give as a gift.
Author and illustrator, Barney Saltzberg is also the creative force behind the bestselling Peekaboo Kisses and last year's Good Egg. A singular work of imagination, creativity and paper engineering fills this book with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges and even an incredible accordion "telescope".
Children will delight in knowing they can create anything from torn paper like an alligator. Or see a spill become an elephant . . . a pack of puppies . . . or even a family of birds. Besides each page having a creative twist to an everyday "Oops", you also get a surprise trying to find how each page reveals the hidden creativity of the "Oops". Making this book extra special and a unique concept book.
-An "OOPS" isn't a reason to cry, but a chance to make something great
-Things can still be beautiful even with "flaws"
-Everyone has "OOPS", nobody is perfect
It's a short book that only takes a couple of minutes to read.
Overall, it is a great book that I'd recommend to anyone with a budding perfectionist at home. :)
Kids would like this book because it's about being creative, the pictures are funny and it's colorful. They would also like all the stuff to do in the book, like lifting all the flaps.
My favorite parts were the whole book.
Adults and kids of every age would like this book and both boys and girls, too.
It gets 5 stars!

Artistic opportunities abound when paint drips and paper tears. Spills and smudges become happy surprises on each brightly colored page. The right attitude can turn, "I messed up," into, "Wow!"
Small hands will enjoy exploring the foldouts, pop-ups, holes and rips. Older readers will appreciate the book's simple message: life is full of mistakes - embrace them!
