This Sesame Beginnings board book tackles the topic of making mistakes. Separate vignettes show the Sesame Babies making small blunders, such as accidentally bopping another with a squishy ball, tipping a bowl of cereal, splattering paint on the wall, or tearing a page in a book. In each instance, the little one is reassured that it's okay to make mistakes—because everybody does sometimes—and that a remedy is at hand. The oopsies are those common to all toddlers, and the tone throughout is soothing and supportive. A simple pull-tab at the end lets tots help Elmo set his own "OOPS!" (a cup of spilled milk) to rights.
