Beatrice always does everything right but one day she made a mistake and burst her balloon. She didn't know what to do so she stood on stage and laughed then everyone else started laughing. This is a great book and it is for 3-6 year olds.

Yes, this is a dread Lesson Learned book. But it’s told with humor and empathy, and has amiable and lively illustrations by the cartoonist Mark Pett. The result is a book many of today’s ultracompetitive mini-superhumans could use. True, the ending ties matters up a bit too neatly, perfectly even, but children in Beatrice will recognize common and imperfect emotions: embarrassment, earnestness, fear of rejection and the relief messiness brings.

Beatrice is so well-known for never making a mistake that she is greeted each morning by fans and reporters, but a near-error on the day of the school talent show could change everything.
