I’m partnering with Workman Publishing to share this giveaway.
My sweet girl Maggie LOVES art. She is always wanting to create new crafts or customize items she already owns by painting them. Sometimes I’ll bring her a new project idea and tell her the instructions, to which she’ll respond, “but we don’t HAVE to do it that way, right?!” She always wants to put her own spin and ideas into things and I love her creative spirit! When I heard about the new book, My Book of Beautiful Oops!, I new it was perfect for her!
About My Book of Beautiful Oops!
A Scribble it, Smear it, Fold it, Tear it Journal for Young Artists
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!
About the Author
Barney Saltzberg is the author of more than 30 books for children, including Beautiful Oops!, A Little Bit of Oomph!, Good Egg, and the bestselling Touch and Feel Kisses series. Additionally, he’s recorded four albums of songs for children. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two dogs, and a pond full of fish.
Just as I suspected, Maggie has LOVED this book! She paints in it a lot which is great because it’s made the book “last” since she can essentially only work on one spread at a time.
My Book of Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg is in stores now. It’s recommended for ages 3 and up.
Visit the book’s official site, then watch the book trailer on YouTube. You can follow Barney Saltzberg on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, & Facebook. You can also follow Workman Publishing on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, & Facebook.
