Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
From science experiments that go horribly wrong to sour notes, bike mishaps, and embarrassing disasters, every day is filled with opportunities for failures―and ultimate successes―that shape a child’s character. Even grandma’s hugs outside of school, which could provide fodder for ridicule, are precious moments that are worth the effort! Illustrator Sally Springer uses a light touch and luminous colors to capture each excruciating moment while author Mark Burrows draws on his experience with young children to create a realistic take on everyday activities. While experiences may seem scary, embarrassing, or silly, youngsters are encouraged to try them anyway!
