Review Quotes




My kids loved listening to this book and it led to a great discussion about the importance of putting things where they belong in the classroom.

J. Kahl
Teacher



Teaching kids how to independently organize is a proactive step toward supporting executive function development. Bocephus and Cletus have different approaches to organization - each with unique strengths. Their experiences in handling organizational demands with their belongings at home and at school guide children through concrete steps to approach planning and organizing. This is the first children's book I have used with direct points to teach this skill!
