This is a great picture book for children that encourages them to see the value in failure. It's not very long, but it manages to express a lot, plus the illustrations are cute. It's the story of a girl who wants to build something magnificent. She thinks she knows how she wants it to turn out, but none of her attempts are quite right. She gets frustrated, and her dog (who is also her best friend) suggests going for a walk. When she gets back, the girl is more focused, and manages to see that all of her failures had some redeeming qualities in them, which helps her to make her truly magnificent thing. Probably this could be a helpful story for the perfectionist in all of us.
