A clever, fun book of possessions and organization can be found in Crabtree by Jon and Tucker Nichols.
Alfred Crabtree has lost his false teeth and doesn’t know where to find them. So he calls each of his sisters who provides him with some great advice on organizing his many belongings. He better find them quickly, too, because he’s hungry.
What a blast this book is. Its large size (14.1 x 8.8 x 0.7 inches) is intriguing enough, but almost every page of this book is filled with a multitude of belongings that Alfred systematically organizes in the hopes of finding his lost teeth. There’s even a set of flip out pages to display more of Alfred’s possessions. Crabtree will teach kids how to organize just about anything. And perhaps even better, if they remove the book sleeve and unfold it, they might find a neat surprise.
