Too Perfect Hardcover – Illustrated, 12 May 2009
“[In Just Kidding] Trudy Ludwig has not only captured the heart of boy taunting, but also the best solutions.” –Susan Wellman, founder of The Ophelia Project
“Sorry! helps parents and educators teach children the magic transformative power of apology.” –Aaron Lazare, MD, author of On Apology
“[Trouble Talk] would be well used by school counselors or social workers to interface with a child who’s exhibiting or harmed by ‘trouble talk.’” –School Library Journal
“Too Perfect sets the stage for meaningful discussions about being yourself and working to your potential, not to perfection. In our extremely competitive society, I highly recommend this book for kids and parents!”
–Barbara Z. Carlson, cofounder of Putting Family First and coauthor of Putting Family First: Successful Strategies for Reclaiming Family Life in a Hurry-up World
“Too Perfect is a much-needed primer for our children (not to mention, the children inside all of us) on why perfection is unhealthy, unproductive, and plain old unfun.” –Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: The Frightening New Normalcy of Hating Your Body
“With Too Perfect, Trudy Ludwig has hit the mark on the pitfalls of perfectionism–and shows children and their parents that we are all ‘perfect’ just the way we are.” –Jill Zimmerman Rutledge, MSW, LCSW, author of Picture Perfect: What You Need to Feel Better About Your Body
“Perfectionism isn’t a disease to be conquered; it is a self-esteem issue in need of healing. Too Perfect shows us how we might begin to do just that.” –Thomas S. Greenspon, PhD, author of Freeing Our Families From Perfectionism and What to Do When Good Enough Isn’t Good Enough: A Guide for Kids

About the author

"I recommend this book for grades 1st (parents made need to read to them) through 6th grade. The book had an impactful message that will effect children in a positive way and make children feel more comfortable, proud and more respectful towards themselves. This will also help them make bigger decisions as the young reader grows more mature."
Sounds like a winner for sure!
I didn't like the art of the book so much. I thought it could be better and more in line with the quality of its contents. But it doesn't mean that it causes any damage to the message that this work so clearly and well conveys.
All in all, a great book that I highly recommend to all children. Parents will be more than happy and they themselves will certainly learn a lot from it too.
