Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg

Love this kids book

Discovered this book tonight with Brooke at the local book store...

Get it here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as Brooke and I do.

read on if you want to hear my rant of how we happened upon this book...

It was Friday afternoon and approaching the witching hour (if you are a parent, you know what I am talking about for sure, that 3-5pm-ish dead zone). So we hopped in the car and headed to Barnes & Noble to explore. I was trying to do double duty scouring the shelves for something new and interesting while I kept an eye on Brooke (age 2 yr. 10 mos.) who was making her own quick work of rearranging the children’s displays riffling through the puzzles, stuffed animals, books, and toys. But I realized I was half looking and half shuffling behind her to shove the items back while she was pulling the next two items down.

I had decided to give up and we should go grab something for dinner. But just as we were heading out the door I saw it. WOW! Just the cover alone got me intrigued. I could not resist pulling my Brookie into my lap and we both devoured this book. Several times. Had to take it home and put it on the low shelf.

I am sure it will bring lots of inspiration to kids of all ages.
