What I Loved: The artwork in Cami Kangaroo Has Too Much Stuff was so well done. It fit the story so well. My daughter mentioned things about the artwork multiple times. “Mom her pouch is REALLY stuffed with toys.” “Mom, that’s a REALLY messy room.” I found that my daughter absolutely loved how the story mixed with the illustration so well.
How I Felt: The story in this book is great. I loved that the missing teddy bear was added because that is such a real issue for children. The mess doesn’t bother them like it does for adults. Children seem to get upset when they can’t find something that they want in all the mess. I liked how the father gave Cami a chance to do it herself and then helped her find a way to clean without being frustrated or overwhelmed when she needed help.
To Read or Not To Read: This is a great book for a preschool to early elementary school. It has a great lesson about cleaning up and offers an easy-to-remember tool to help a child clean.
Cami Kangaroo is going to her cousin’s birthday party today! Before she can leave the house, her dad asks that she clean her room. This turns out to be a big task! Her room is a mess. Cami likes to keep everything. She places items in her pouch and everywhere in her room.
She tries to clean, but she gets distracted over and over. She realizes she has lost her cousin’s teddy bear and begins to look for it. Her dad comes in and helps her focus on one clean up task at a time and she discovers that it is much better to have her room clean. She is able to find the missing teddy bear and make it to the party.
