My Book of Beautiful Oops!: A Scribble It, Smear It, Fold It, Tear It Journal for Young Artists
Bargain Book Copy
Also available as Scratch & Dent for $4.29 USD
Every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. This is the central idea of Beautiful Oops!, Barney Saltzberg’s beloved bestseller - and now My Book of Beautiful Oops!, an interactive journal for young artists, takes that principle into unexpected new directions.
A hands-on journal that’s meant to be personalized - drawn in, painted on, torn up, smudged, or otherwise artistically wrecked - My Book of Beautiful Oops! is filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages that will challenge the reader’s sense of play. The friendly green alligator from the first book prompts the reader: Bend a page. Decorate a smudge. Play with splats and spills. Even complete a poem that was accidentally ripped in half.
My Beautiful Book of Oops! champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It’s about self-forgiveness, about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it’s about freedom - the freedom to be creative and follow your curiosity wherever it goes. That’s a lesson to celebrate.
