“For young Zach, a class field trip to the museum is about more than cool exhibits—it is also about learning from mistakes and dealing with embarrassment. First he forgets to wear his field trip shirt, then he forgets the rule about not touching displays. His teacher helps him see that everyone makes mistakes—and how to use them to grow. Using an easy-to-remember tool, the Key to Mistakes, she shows Zach and young readers ages 5 to 8 a simple three-step process: Detect (find the reason for the mistake), Correct (fix the mistake if you can), and Reflect (think back about your mistake to find what you can learn from it). Zach Makes Mistakes also includes a short note to help teachers, parents, counselors, and other adults reinforce the book’s messages and practice the skills with their kids. The latest addition to author William Mulcahy’s outstanding Zach Rules series for boys and girls, Zach Makes Mistakes is appropriate and highly recommended for elementary school and community library collections for young readers.”Midwest Book Review
