Here's one piece of advice from the Parents panel of experts. With my daughter we try to make cleaning up part of the game, but sometimes her play area and room are still disaster zones! Good luck.

New Book "A Boy Called Sloppy Joe"  teaches children why to clean and be responsible. The result is endless pride and good self esteem. Something a child can carry into adulthood. It's a Great starter book for little ones. Sloppy Joe sets a great example. Waiting for a sloppy joe doll too!

This sounds like a great book. Right now I am having great success with my children cleaning up after themselves. I'm not sure why, it's not a problem right now at ages 7 and 9, but a book would be the first thing I would turn to because my kids love books!

Yes! It's a great teaching tool because children learn best by example. Using colorful illustrations, A Boy called Sloppy Joe walks the reader through the consequences of a messy bedroom. More importantly, they also learn the benefits of keeping their room tidy. A fun read- a -long for both parents and new readers. Remember, don't be a "sloppy joe"!! And Happy Holidays.
