Overview

Packy the Packrat’s mother has had enough! It’s time that he sorts through his ever-growing collection of trinkets and puts them away. Told in rhyme, the text leads the reader to participate in the sorting process by categorizing Packy’s piles of things according to like characteristics and attributes. The story promotes and reinforces analogous thinking—a critical thinking skill in math, science, and life. In the “For Creative Minds” education section at the back of the book, the reader can explore even more attributes and characteristics of objects, including color, size, texture, shape, and material.

This is a very unique book, and I just loved it. Packy the Pack Rat has many collections. Mom has had enough of the messy house, so she orders Packy to sort his collections and put them all away. What kinds of collections does Packy have? Will he obey his mom, organize them, and then put them away? Or, will the Packrat household remain in disarray forever? You'll just have to read this really cute book to find out! Author Barbara Mariconda does a great job telling this charming story in rhyme in such a fun way that it invites readers to participate by guessing the next rhyming word. The illustrations are so cheerful and bright. If you look carefully at the illustrations, you may spot Packy's sister up to some very interesting antics. I give this book a high five for fun while teaching your child critical thinking skills that will help them later in life for math, science and life skills and for the plot, the very unique collections highlighted, and for the sub-plot illustrations. This book is a keeper! The author specifically wrote this book because when she was teaching second grade, she wanted to use books that made math and science fun. There were so few at the time, she decided to write them herself to share with her second graders and fellow teachers. I'm so glad she did! As with all Sylvan Dell books, the end of the book contains a section called For Creative Minds that is also available online. In this section is: 'Hidden Picture', 'Sorting, Categorizing, and Classifying', 'Scientists Sort Things Into Groups Too!' (contains a graph), 'Packy's Sorting Cards' and 'Writing Connection'.
