The Book of Mistakes

The Book of Mistakes
Author: Corinna Luyken
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Reviewer: Denise Z.


Summary: As one artist incorporates accidental splotches, spots, and misshapen things into her art, she transforms her piece in quirky and unexpected ways, taking readers on a journey through her process. Told in minimal, playful text, this story shows readers that even the biggest "mistakes" can be the source of the brightest ideas--and that, at the end of the day, we are all works in progress, too. 

Review: I love finding good picture books that have valuable messages for kids. The Book of Mistakes by Corinna Luyken is one of these special books. Everyone makes mistakes and more importantly, a mistake isn't the end of the world and can sometimes spark something that isn't a mistake, such as in this wonderfully illustrated book.

This is a picture book that depends heavily on its illustrations to make its point. I find the pictures to be unique, artistic, and imaginative. I like how the words are so simple, yet artistic in itself. This book really shows children the point of how a mistake can be made into something better and beautiful. A good book for storytime and for discussing mistakes, as well as an incredibly helpful book for a child who struggles accepting mistakes.
