In this humorous picture book, "I’m Never, Ever Wrong . . . but Sometimes I Can Be!" by Deborah Schneider Kraut, Sophie Sage believes that she is never, ever wrong. But one day, when Sophie participates in her school’s “Guessing Game,” she suddenly forgets what she had planned to say. Sophie is humiliated in front of her classmates and races to her seat. She never wants to participate in anything again. Fortunately, Sophie’s beloved “Gramps” helps Sophie learn that it’s okay to make mistakes, especially if she tries to correct them on her next turn. In fact, as Gramps tells Sophie, “overcoming your mistakes is bound to make you strong. “ This book addresses the problems young children face when feeling pressured to be perfect. It teaches children that mistakes are natural and, even helpful, especially when used as opportunities to learn and grow stronger. "I’m Never, Ever Wrong . . . but Sometimes I Can Be!" is the first in a series of picture books designed to teach valuable life lessons. They include learning from mistakes, sharing and compromise, and communicating one’s needs with confidence. The author, a Professor of Communication Studies at Santa Monica College, hopes that as parents and children read these humorous tales together, children will gain important skills in interpersonal communication. Praise for "I'm Never, Ever Wrong . . . but Sometimes I Can Be!" "The message—that everyone makes mistakes, and it’s OK to be wrong once in a while—will be clear even to younger children, making the book a great teaching tool for parents or teachers dealing with issues of self-esteem and confidence in children. Modern, colorful illustrations and a fun tale ensure that this message never becomes too preachy." —Kirkus Reviews
