A Place For Everything - Sean Covey (Picture Book)

 













Released May 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Here’s a picture book that illustrates the importance of keeping a neat room so a child can find his or her possessions when he/she needs them. Jumper Rabbit is ready to play a pick-up game of basketball with his friends but he’s not wearing his basketball shoes.

The rabbit rushes home but his hole is such a mess he can’t find the shoes. Thinking he left them at a friend’s house, he searches all over 7 Oaks, but no luck! Finally Jumper and his buddy, Goob Bear, return to the rabbit’s hole and sift through all the stuff strewn about and find the missing sneakers.

The message is clear – there’s a place for everything and everything should be in its place! At the back of the book you’ll find a “Parents Corner”,” Discussion Questions” and some ideas on how to launch a “clean-up” campaign that will show children how to get organized and maintain some type of order in their rooms.

If your child is particularly messy you’ll went to share this book with him or her. Although it is designed for younger children, it might not be a bad idea to leave a copy of A Place for Everything next to your teenager’s place at the dinner table!
