This beautifully illustrated and written book has a great way of teaching children the lesson of picking up after themselves while keeping their attention with the pictures and message.
It shows Ryan never putting anything away and leaving dishes or clothes where he drops them. He ignored his father's reminders to put his things away or else the night gnomes would take them. Ryan didn't believe in the gnomes but soon realizes something is up when he finds the things he left laying around in bags for charity.
This book can easily be read to children too young to read or they can read it themselves once they are old enough. Children up to 9 years old would enjoy and learn from this book.
Please note I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
