It’s Okay to Make Mistakes
by Todd Parr
Just as the title suggests, this easy picture book teaches readers that mistakes are okay; in fact, they are points of learning! Todd Parr gives various examples of mistakes that kids are likely to make. Then he shows a resolution on how that mistake is okay, or even better than okay.
For example: It’s okay to change your mind. (Shows an elephant afraid to dive off the high dive). Everyone is ready at a different time.
Example #2: It’s okay to be shy. Being quiet can make you a good listener.
While teaching a great social skill of being okay making mistakes, this book would also be a great addition to a cause and effect lesson.
