Editorial Reviews

Review

"A refreshing fable that assures kids it's OK to mess up once in a while -- but doesn't beat them over the head with the moral.

The mom's take: Gary Rubinstein's tale of a 9-year-old perfectionist is a refreshing fable that assures kids it's OK to mess up once in a while -- but doesn't beat them over the head with the moral. Mark Pett's gentle cartoon illustrations liven up even more the story of an ordinary-looking girl who clings to her image of being anything but ordinary.

The kid's take: When my 7-year-old son...finished, he sat with a thoughtful look on his face for a moment -- then reopened the book to read it through again. If that's not a recommendation, I don't know what is." - The Oregonian Parenting Blog

" this book might be one way to help them see that trying to be perfect can get in the way of having fun and being creative, and that absolutely no one is perfect.

The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes is a fun book with an important message that never gets in the way of the good story. Elementary age children are sure to both enjoy and benefit from this delightful book." - Wrapped in Foil

"I hope that there are more Beatrice Bottomwell stories on the way because my girls will enjoy them tremendously!

Thank you Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein for teaching the kids that you don't have to be perfect all the time!

We love this book!
" - Supermom Reviews

"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.

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." - Real Adventures from a Mom of 3

"The best part of this book was the message sent. That you don't have to be perfect, that making mistakes is okay and you sure can have a lot more fun if you allow yourself not to worry so much about messing up.

Overall this is a great book that I'm sure my children will enjoy for the next several years." - Candace's Book Blog

"There are about a hundred ways the story of a perfect child could go wrong. Fortunately, Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein don't fall into any of the traps. Instead, they offer a delightful picture book about a girl who has perfected perfectionism. Flawless." - Argus-Leader

"I have to say, I was really impressed by this book. The story is cute and the illustrations are beautiful. Most importantly, it was a hit with the kids." - The Suburban Princess Diaries

"If there is one book you read to your little ones this year - this is it!!!

And this book is perfect for showing them how mistakes can be normal AND even funny!! Pett's illustrations are wonderful at capturing the feelings of the kids in the book - they are simple and yet full of emotion.

Thank you, Pett and Rubinstein, for showing us perfectionists that it's ok to NOT be perfect all the time!! Where was this book when I was a kid anyway!?!?!?
" - In The Pages

"It's fun and instructive without feeling overly didactic and the illustrations are darling. Look for it in a book store or library near you. " - Parenting

"this book was not only a great fit for my children to learn from, but me too. Let's face it we all make mistakes and we all need to learn how to deal with that. I make plenty...daily. My kids are young and I want them to learn it's ok." - Giveaway Blogdom
