Penelope Perfect is a fantastic picture book for every collection, because it addresses a challenge that many young girls today face - the need to be perfect. The main character, Penelope, likes everything to be just so every day. When a power outage disrupts her perfect schedule and she wakes up late, changing her whole day, she ends up realizing that unplanned days can be fun, too. Her gradual acceptance of not being perfect all the time and always having to follow a strict routine can help children understand that it’s not the end of the world when things go differently than planned. A useful section at the end includes activities and discussion topics for children and their grown ups, and "A Psychologist's Perspective" for parents.
