About the Book-A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell

In this interactive and engaging read-aloud, bestselling author and award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell creates a funny, engaging, and almost perfect story about embracing life’s messes.

Little Louie’s story keeps getting messed up, and he’s not happy about it! What’s the point of telling his tale if he can’t tell it perfectly? But when he stops and takes a deep breath, he realizes that everything is actually just fine, and his story is a good one–imperfections and all.

What this book teaches-Creativity

My review of the book:

This is a story that your work doesn’t need to be perfect. Through trying over and over again and never giving up, you will actually see that the unexpected can be good. So mistakes can lead to something new, unexpected and good. This story teaches growth mindset.
