  3. How wonderful.. a book that builds resilience in children, that turns manure into flowers… Love every page of it: the colour, the wisdom: an inspirational book and a must for counsellors, teachers , parents and anyone working with children.

  9. “In a world where kids are constantly pushed to achieve and succeed, where school is largely (sadly) focused on testing, comparing and ranking, all kids need to know that mistakes are how we grow! Failure is a healthy part of the process of learning. Josh Langley sums these key messages up in his cheekily illustrated new children’s book “Magnificent Mistakes& Fantastic Failures”. Most profoundly, the phrase “YOU are important to the world” highlights that we all have self-doubt and challenges at times, but YOU matter a lot.”

  10. “I LOVE this book. Helping our young people feel good about themselves in a way they can understand and connect……Josh has a unique talent for getting his message across to children of all ages( and even adults). Not fitting in, feeling different, making mistakes and feeling a failure……powerful and important messages for children presented in a colourful and entertaining way. A book that needs to be in every school and library.”

  11. “Yay for Josh Langley,” As a fan and friend, I just wish “Magnificent Mistakes and Fantastic Failures” had been around when I was a child- my childhood would have been a lot easier. A superb book for children and reminder for everyone that they are important to the world. Thumbs up from me, thumbs up from my three munchkins who love all Josh’s books.”
