"WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE MADE A MISTAKE, THINK OF IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL!"
AAAAH super super books for putting a spring in your step and a spring in your classes step too (if you happen to have one). 'Beautiful Oops' by Barney Saltzberg must be picked up and explored as it has lots of treats in store in pocket, lift up and other treasure forms. Then there's 'Ish' by Peter Reynolds in which there is a very recognisable event which turns into something completely different with the help of a much younger child-ain't that sometimes the way? Lastly there is the wonderful 'What do you do with an idea by Kobi Yamada, illustrated by Mae Besom which quite simply should be read by everyone young and old. It's about dreaming, hoping, having an idea, holding on to it, believing in it and making it happen. I know we get more cynical as we get older but really how would we ever have ideas and make the world a better place if it wasn't for a bit of this? Who's up for changing the world?
