BUILDING A YOUNG CHILDS' CREATIVE CONFIDENCE

Beautiful Oops! By: Barney Saltzberg

Based on transforming an “oops” into something beautiful, this wonderful pop up book builds every young child’s creative confidence.  "A spill, a smear, a smudge, a tear...when you think you have made a mistake, think of it as an opportunity to make something beautiful".  Barney Saltzberg is the author and illustrator of "Good Egg", "Peekaboo Kisses", and lots of other bestselling books for children.  I begin every class with this wonderful book!

I had the amazing opportunity of being placed in a Preschool in Livingston, Zambia through the volunteer organization IVHQ to assist in teaching Preschool Classes.  This experience was truly unforgettable and life changing for me.   

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.  What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
