From torn to terrific, stained to sensational, a group of children on April 18 learned that messes or mistakes only hide masterpieces.

The children visited Prairie Path Books in Wheaton for the Beautiful Oops! event. They loved working with College of DuPage instructor Pam Keller, who started the kids off with coffee stains, paint slurps and torn up paper. By the end of the event, they couldn't wait to get home and show their families their very own, hand-made "Beautiful Oops" book.

The event was based on the book, “Beautiful Oops,” by Barney Saltzberg.

Prairie Path Books is tucked inside Toms-Price Home Furnishings, 303 Front St., Wheaton.
