Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a story based on a song by the same title. Kubart’s bouncing, lively rhyme reinforces the message that it’s okay to make mistakes. Examples in the text are common things that little ones accidentally do like tracking in mud, buttoning a coat or jacket wrong and spills. What a great way to get through the too often tears that follow such incidents, just say, “Oopsie-do.” Favorite Lines- “Forget all the flub-ups and mess-ups you make. No reason to fret if you make a mistake! Just say . . . OOPSIE-DO!” Richmond’s illustrations focus on the faces of those illustrated. She captures the emotions that help bring each scene to life
