For Zach, a class field trip to the museum is about more than cool exhibits it s 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 readers a simple three-step process:

  • Detect (find the reason for the mistake)
  • Correct (fix the mistake if you can),
  • Reflect (think back about your mistake to find what you can learn from it).

Back matter includes a short note to help teachers, parents, counsellors, and other adults reinforce the books messages and practice the skills with their kids.
