Mistakes that Worked

Waltzing Matilda's post about Play-doh reminded me of a fun little book that my kids love.

Mistakes That Worked, by Charlotte Jones, and illustrated by John O'Brien, is full of those "mistakes" that became ingenious inventions.

"Mistakes that Worked" has been a big read over here. Thanks for reminding me...it's time to dig it off the shelf for the younger two. :)

This one lives in my kids' beds...

I've also found it makes a very nice gift -- especially if you wrap it up with some of the special kinds of Silly Putty -- for ps friends and relatives, especially boys, who think they don't like to read or don't like school :)
