Sort It Out

Submitted by Tess from Lexington Park!
Sort It Out! by Barbara Mariconda, with illustrations by Sherry Rogers, is a children's picture book that works on many levels. On one level, it's a cute story about a Packy the Pack-rat (an awesome name for a character in general), who's mother insists he put all his things away. On another level, it's a mystery (his things keep going missing! Wonder if his sneaky kid sister has anything to do with it). On another level it suggests several different ways kids can organize things (by color, shape, material, etc.). And on yet another level it's an interactive rhyming book: "The turtle, the clover, the skinny string bean, he placed in a pile made of things that are... [say it with me] green!" All in all a fun book for multiple reasons.
