Format: Paperback
I have a seven-year-old who is often frustrated when her craft projects, schoolwork etc. don't always turn out as perfect as she planned and who also will refuse to participate in activites unless she is sure her execution will be perfect. We read this book together a chapter a night and talked about the decisions made after each chapter.

I liked that this book spanned a number of examples that included music lessons, schoolwork, sports and trying new things - I think the breadth of examples made it easy for my young listener to grasp that the idea that "nobody's perfect" applies to lots of areas in life and that its more important to try your best and have fun. I hope she will reread this book on her own as she gets older.

This book really helped my child with her expectations of herself and others. Today, it seems we are not allowed to be flawed and make mistakes. Perfection is the ultimate goal. I disagree with that and feel children are under too much pressure to get perfect marks and behave like adults. This book helps build understanding of character. It changes the focus from trying to be perfect and do everything right to understanding and appreciating yourself and others as they are.

I bought this book for the granddaughters, my 11 yr old read it in little time and the story absorbed her. she loved it, since she also studies classical piano and does yearly concerts, Even though parents and grandparents will say the same things, it is always better for a child to read it as a story. An appreciation to the author.

This story reached my 6 year old junior perfectionist, and she regularly asked for it until it got packed away during our move... Very nicely written with development across the individual story chapters towards the overall theme.
