The illustrations were cute, and I could see where elementary readers could find this funny. ( )

The tongue-in-cheek humor will appeal to elementary students. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations crackle with vitality, but the exuberant cross-hatching may make it hard for larger classes to really see the pictures clearly. ( )

Cute book. It was not at all what I expected. I was browsing ebooks from my library and saw this. I assumed it was geared towards tween, with advice on how to tackle cleaning a room. But it is a picture book, geared towards the early grades and it is FUNNY. Advising kids to shove everything under the bed, in the closet, etc. It reminds me a lot of [b:How to Eat Like a Child: And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown-up|408106|How to Eat Like a Child And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown-up|Delia Ephron|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1174500994s/408106.jpg|574141], though that one was geared towards adults! If you have small kids, they will enjoy this, and you will enjoy sharing the story with them. ( )

I was amused, as were both the girls. My favorite part was "arrange all your stuffed animals." Too true.

This book is very funny and simple. It explains the exact opposite of the title. The little girl in the book just pushes everything under her bed instead of actually cleaning her room. I probably wound not read it to my students because there is no lesson taught in this book. ( )
