Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Children and animals each make one of the 13 mistakes that appear on the verso of each spread. Socks are mismatched, an umbrella is left at home, and shoes are not tied properly. After the characters say, "Uh-Oh!" the scenario continues onto the facing page, where they are told that it's okay to make mistakes because, "you might meet someone new," "you can always ask for help," or "you can always clean it up." The bright, bold digital illustrations are outlined in black and set against colorful backgrounds, making the book perfect for group sharing and discussing.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From Booklist

This appealing picture book assures young readers that it’s okay to try new things. Each two-page spread introduces an action on the left page (“It’s okay to fall down”), followed by a positive result on the right (“You can always get back up”). The repeating pattern—dilemma and resolution—creates a nice rhythm for a read-aloud and provides a platform for brainstorming additional examples. Readers are reassured that these common experiences (spilling milk, not knowing an answer, being shy) can happen to anyone, and they will receive positive messages about confidence and empathy. Parr’s distinctive cartoonlike illustrations feature vivid colors set off by heavy black outlining, and are large enough to be effective in group settings. Closely aligned to the text, the illustrations also add plenty of whimsy and humor. This selection will be equally effective for one-on-one sharing or storytimes, and it is sure to be just as popular as Parr’s previous crowd-pleasers, especially The Feelings Book (2000) and It’s Okay to Be Different (2001). Preschool-Grade 1. --Kathleen McBroom --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
