I’m working with Workman Publishing to share this giveaway!

My fourth child is probably one of the most imaginative kids that I know. Sometimes it seems like everything she looks at becomes a game, a project or a craft. If you have a child like this, then you have to check out the book My Book of Beautiful Oops By Barney Saltzberg. This book is all about creativity and imagination. I love that in encourages a child to take an artistic idea and use their imagination to make something completely knew. This book is filled with page after page of fun creative ideas for kids.

About My Book of Beautiful Oops!

“MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! is a hands-on journal that’s designed to help young hands and minds turn an “oops” into art. The friendly green alligator—familiar to readers of Beautiful Oops!—prompts the reader to imagine the possibilities of a bent page. Decorate a smudge. Play with splats and spills. Even complete a poem that was accidentally ripped in half.

Filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages, the activities will challenge the reader’s sense of play as they draw in, paint on, tear up, smudge, and ultimately artistically wreck the book. MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It’s about self-forgiveness and about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it’s about freedom—the freedom to be creative and follow curiosity wherever it goes. That’s a lesson to celebrate!”

This book is fine because it is easy for kids as young as age 3 but the older they get the more creative they can get. It is fun to see how different ages use their imaginations differently in making creations. My Book of Beautiful Oops By Barney Saltzberg is available in stores now.
