Paperback edition with 48 pages.

Sally Sanders is good at everything she does, or so it seems. Secretly she is afraid that if she can't do something well, or be the best, she will feel like a failure. She is scared that she is not "good enough." As a perfectionist, hitting the wrong note at a piano recital, or not making the soccer team feels like the end of the world! Gradually, through the help of her teachers and mother, Sally learns to have fun and not worry so much about being the best. She realizes that making mistakes is a part of learning, and that doing her best is good enough.

Thank you, hakkalina, for the wonderful gifts you sent me for Christmas. The Christmas ornament (fits very well to the other one you sent me last year!), the Christmas card, this wonderful book and the chocolate.
Chocolate? Well, before I even could say the word, it was already devided in three equal heaps and ... then it was gone. Delicious, thank you for everything my friend!

Lovely little book.
I think it is great that an author writes about uncertainty, perfectionism, how (some)children see themselves. It may be a great help to let children who suffer from perfectionism or the thought that they aren't worth anything, who are afraid to make mistakes see, that making mistakes, not getting straight A's, being different is not so bad at all.

I just finished reading this book today. I recognise myself in Sally, as I used to be just like that. Everything had to be perfect. It was my way, or no way and I had to get the best grades no matter how long I stayed up at night studying or doing project work. I'm not like that any more, thank goodness. All work--no play = not good!
No one has to be perfect, and I hope that no parents expect their children to be perfect either.

This book is going to KJSkye for her son.

Hallo daar, gelukkige vinder!
Wat leuk dat je op deze pagina bent komen kijken. Als je dit leest, heb je een boek gevonden, zomaar een onverwacht kadootje van mij voor jou... Veel plezier ermee! Hierbij trouwens wat spelregels mbt bookcrossing:

1. Het zou fijn zijn als je meldt dat het veilig bij jou is. Dat mag gewoon in het Nederlands.
2. Daarna kun je het boek gaan lezen en als je wilt nog eens schrijven wat je ervan vond.
3. Mag het boek verder reizen, geef het dan door aan iemand anders, of laat het zomaar ergens weer achter, liefst op een veilige, droge plek. Je kunt via de bookcross-site ook weer melden waar je het hebt neergelegd, zodat anderen ernaar op zoek kunnen gaan...
TIP: Als je het boek op zijn reis wilt volgen, dan kun je je het beste aanmelden als nieuwe bookcrosser ( Het is erg leuk om erachter te komen hoe het met 'jouw' boek op z'n reis verder gaat!!
Ik zou het erg leuk vinden als je mij
chamonix44 dan opgeeft als referent. Voor Nederlandse uitleg kun je terecht op de volgende site:

If you are reading here, then I want to tell you that this is a. FREE . book, and there are no catches! It is now yours! Please read on.....
If you are the finder of this book it would be nice if you could leave a message here to say that you have it. Do not worry because I don't want the book back. It is yours to keep if you want it. I just want to know it is now in safe hands.
