In It's Okay to Make Mistakes, Todd Parr brings a timely theme to life with his signature bold, kid-friendly illustrations and a passion for making readers feel good about themselves, encouraging them to try new things, experiment, and dare to explore new paths. From coloring outside the lines and creating a unique piece of art to forgetting an umbrella but making a new friend, the book is about embracing mistakes and the joy of happy accidents. Each page offers a kid-friendly take on the importance of taking chances, trying new things, and embracing life, mistakes and all.

His work has won several international photography competitions, including the Global Health Council Photographer of the Year Award and the SocialDocumentary.net / MSH Photography Fellowship Grand Prize.
