A Difficult Thing: The Importance of Making Mistakes is a tiny story of pictures has a good message and beautiful artwork. I picked it up because admitting mistakes is definitely a message I want to impart my 5yo and 3yo. The story shows one child working hard to help another sad child fix his broken wagon so they can play happily together again. I wouldn’t say it so much shows “The Importance of Admitting Mistakes” since it doesn’t show the fixer/helper child breaking the wagon to begin with – the wagon just starts off broken.

But my 5yo said he liked it “a whole lot”, and it was his second favorite of the four new books we read today. I would totally recommend this to any kids from the ages of 2-4. Thanks to Diamond Book Distributors and NetGalley for the free ARC!
