Little Reads: A Perfectly Messed Up Story

Oh, Louie's story. My old friend. This book will always be very dear to me because it's the first book that Isla ever "read" (recited.) We read this book so, so many times. It was her only request for so long. We haven't read it in a while, but I pulled it off our shelf the other day and read it again. It's still great, in case you were wondering.

A Perfectly Messed Up Story is about how things can still be good even if they aren't perfect. Louie lives in this book and as he's strolling along the pages, they just get messier and messier with normal kid messes. Things like orange juice, markers, peanut butter and jelly, etc.

Louie gets very frustrated and gives up on trying to tell his story, but quickly reconsiders once he realizes that his book is still good, even if it is messy. It's proof that his book has been well used and well loved. What more can a book ask for?

"And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good." -John Steinbeck

Have you read this one? What's the first book your little one could recite from memory?
