Nobody's Perfect Children's Picture Book by David Elliott. Not being perfect has its virtues in this irresistible child’s-eye view. Your best friend is kind of a show-off. Your baby sister is loud. And Mom can be pretty stubborn. Not perfect! But sometimes they come pretty close, and you do, too. David Elliott’s winning, tongue-in-cheek text combines with Sam Zuppardi’s fresh, kid-friendly illustrations to show that life may be more about patience than perfection, and that focusing on the positive reaps its own rewards. Hardcover. Published by Candlewick. 4-8 years.
