Ruth The Sleuth is the story of Ruth, a little girl who is so accustomed to foraging through the clutter in her room that she has become quite adept at finding things in the midst of her messiness. When she loses her mother's oven mitt, she is given a deadline. --By the time the chocolate chip cookies in the oven are done baking, the oven mitt must be returned. No problem for Ruth because, as she says, she is "Ruth the Sleuth" and can find anything. As Ruth searches for the oven mitt, she discovers other treasures that had been lost in the chaos of her room. As the minutes tick away, it becomes clear to Ruth that being organized might have its advantages. As her desire to play outside with her friend becomes more and more acute, she resolves to keep her room more tidy. With a post script offering creative ideas to help encourage kids to be tidy, along with a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, this book has lots to offer for children, parents and educators. Written by retired school-teacher, Carol Gordon Ekster, Ruth the Sleuth is an excellent book for school libraries, for reading in classroom settings, and for home reading shelves.
