Beautiful Oops! - Barney Saltzberg

I was observing in 3rd grade last semester for my SPED class at Gwin Elementary and the reading coach came in and taught a lesson on growth mindset and she read this book. I wasn't familiar with growth mindset until then and I quickly became a big fan. It's all about teaching kids that you are always learning and your brain is always growing and it does all of this by making mistakes and I think its such a great message to teach. She read this book and the artwork is amazing. It shows how spills and rips and tears can turn into something beautiful. Its a really great message and I would read it at all grades to teach growth mindset.
