Nobody's Perfect: A Story for Children About Perfectionism
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Sally Sanders is a perfectionist — if she can't be the best, she feels like a failure. Sally procrastinates, shies away from new things, and constantly compares herself to others, convinced she's not good enough.
With the help of her teachers and mother, Sally learns how to relax and try new things without worrying so much about being the best. She can just be herself, and that is all she needs.
