However, although they are different, they are still good friends. Be Tidy, or Not?, is a book that allows the readers to understand and appreciate the differences in their friends.

This is the 2nd book in this series and all three were sent to me by the author for my honest review. I really like these books for you children as you read to them or they read by themselves it is a lesson on how to behave. This one is about the chores that needs to be done every day and the way the child should keep their clothes and toys. Teaches how to help Mommy in the way they behave. As the first book Zoom Boom starts the series with just beautiful illustrations so does this one. The pages have the words large enough for the child to follow alone
Before reading this book to my second grade class I shared the front cover and asked my students to predict what the book might be about. Everyone thought similar ideas about being neat or messy. They sure were surprised when at the end we discussed the theme of the book and what we could learn from it…excepting others, taking care of things you borrow, or how reading is something that can bring friends together. Teachers can easily use this book to compare and contrast characters by using a venn diagram. This book was a joy to read and discuss.
