Reviewer: The Happy Guy
What is the biggest problem facing this planet? Just ask any parent … it's kids who don't keep their room clean. And just in time, Susan Younan Attiyah rides to the rescue with I'll Never Find Anything in Here.
This is a tale that both parents and children can relate to - parents with a knowing nod or a roll of the eyeballs; children with horror at what can happen if a room gets too messy. Georgey misses the chance to play ball and to watch his favorite video, and he almost loses the chance to go on a class trip to the zoo - all because his room is too messy to find what he needs.
To the rescue, Mom rides in to help him clean up his room. (I wonder if this children's book might be autobiographical.)
Bottom line: sweet, cute, adorable and easy for both parents and children to appreciate, with equally warm and fuzzy illustrations by Debra Lynn Lovitt.
