Beautiful Oops! written and illustrated by Barney Saltzberg

Every page of Beautiful Oops! is an art project waiting to happen! Beautiful Oops! just oozes inspiration, ideas and creativity of the most playful kind. Barney Saltzberg definitely has a gift for creating books of this nature and all of them are little gems. Filled with fantastic paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is paean to imagination and tool kit for cheerfully, creatively approaching mistakes. Also, it's just a really fun book to read. Keep Beautiful Oops! in mind when graduation season rolls around, too! This may be sacrilege, but I think  Beautiful Oops! should take the place of Oh, The Places You'll Go! by Dr Seuss as the go-to book for grads. 

Saltzberg also makes excellent book trailers that practically do my job for me. The only think I have left to say is buy a copy of this book for yourself and another to give as a gift for kids of all ages. And be sure to check out Celebrate Oops!, a program to foster creativity. The website is a great place to get inspired and share ideas.
