Be a perfect person…or not

perfectWe just read Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days. In this story a boy named Milo accidentely finds a book in the libary…actually it falls off of a shelf and hits him on the head. The book says that it can teach him how to be “perfect” in exactly three days. Milo really wants to be perfect and since it’s really thin, he reads it! In three short days, Milo does some pretty strange things like wearing a stalk of broccoli on a string around his neck on his quest to be perfect.

At the end of the story he begins to wonder if perfection is all it cracked up to be. Dr. Silverfish even says, “Perfect is boring!” How has Milo’s feelings about perfection changed? How have your feelings about being perfect changed?
