The perfect story for the little young perfectionist who may need a little courage to try something new...
Even if it's not perfect, or if the outcome is a little clumsy... even if the result isn't top of class, or number one... mommy and daddy still love you.
"I want to make a cake that is round and beautiful!" "I want to eat as fast as the other kids!" "I want other kids to like me!"
The little girl in the story puts a lot of effort in everything she does, but often gets frustrated and upset when things don't turn out as she had hoped. This is when mommy says:
"A leaning cake is great too — it's the only one like it in the world!" "You can eat slow, and you can eat fast. Everyone has their own pace." "There's no need to mask your traits, because a true friend will love you just the way you are :)"
Mommy loves every side of you!
Many of us parents have expectations for our young children, and these often get unintentionally ingrained into the voice in our kids' head. Some end up putting unreasonable demands on themselves.
This beautifully illustrated book with relatable characters, is a great reminder around growth mindset, that we're all still learning, and that it is absolutely okay to make mistakes sometimes.
