The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein

Beatrice Bottomwell has always done everything perfectly.  She NEVER makes mistakes. From getting dressed to making sandwiches to her juggling act she has done the last 3 years in the talent show, she does everything without any mistakes.  But this year is different.  The day of the talent show arrives and during a cooking lesson at school, Beatrice almost makes a mistake.  What could this mean?  When it is her turn to perform at the talent show she is nervous but the crowd is not because she is "the girl that never makes mistakes!"  It is too late in her juggling act when Beatrice realizes her salt shaker actually has specks falling out that are not salt.....and the hamster suddenly.....A great book for teaching kids about making mistakes and that everyone makes mistakes, even perfect Beatrice Bottomwell.
