Book Review

Title: I Love To Keep My Room Clean

By  Shelley Admont
Delight and wonderfully illustrated

I Love To Keep My Room Clean.  While enjoying a wonderful, colorful and delight story, children are learning the importance of keeping their room clean not by one but three bunny brothers. It opens up and starts a conversation with small children on being responsible for cleaning their room picking things up toys, socks, and things the bunny brothers are a good touch to the story. This is another fantastic manner in which to present to your child the value of picking toys up after playing with them – clean up as you play – and before going onto the next toy, great values and morals.

Good read for ages 3-8.
