Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Perfect Petunias is a book especially for those little people who find it hard to make mistakes, designed to 'shape' perfectionistic tendencies towards being a little more self-accepting and flexible. Loppy LAC is very worried about not doing his homework well enough. He is always focusing on what he hasn't done rather then what he has, and he becomes very frustrated. So, his friend Curly teaches him about how petunias grow - in lots of different, imperfect directions that we can't control! Loppy learns that by trying to control whether he makes mistakes or not it's as if he's always trying to grow 'perfect' petunias. Sometimes he just needs to accept that things go a certain way and to change his definition of 'perfect' to mean trying his absolute best.
