How to Clean Your Room in 10 Easy Steps by Jennifer LaRue Huget

 How to Clean Your Room in 10 Easy Steps
Now I love children's books.  It's a simple formula of good pictures and a fun story.  So it is rare to find a children's book that is not good.  Well, this one fits that mold.

The premise of the book is a girl telling us the "shortcuts" to cleaning your room.  Sure, it's clever and cute, but as a parent, I know my kids will actually take these literally and be stuffing weird things in their drawers, putting trash in the hamper, etc.

Then there were the illustrations, done by Edward Koren.  They were very difficult to see.  Most of the pictures were of the girl's bedroom and it was kind of a jumbled mess.

My kids were bored, I was bored.
