Penelope Perfect: A Tale of Perfectionism Gone Wild by Shannon Anderson
Penelope is an elementary school child perfectionist perhaps bordering on OCD. The illustrations are very cute. The rhyming story is fun to read. After a storm knocks out the electricity and her alarm clock fails to ring, Penelope oversleeps and has a very on-perfect day and learns how to lighten up and have fun. The book has activities and discussion questions at the end that parents and educators can use to discuss anxiety and perfectionism with children after reading the story. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
