About the Author
Sybrina has seven grand children. Four of them are sweet little girls. This story was inspired when she asked one of them, who was three years old at the time, "What is your very favorite thing in the world to do?" She looked up smiling and said with great enthusiasm, "I like to mess up my room!". That immediately inspired a song (which is available with that name on Amazon). A couple of years later, this book, "Yarashell Abbily and Her Very Messy Room" came along. Yarashell Abbily is a composite name for those 4 little girls - Yara, Michelle, Abbey and Emily. Enjoy!

The perfect story for all the kids who like to keep their room a mess, Yarashell Abbily’s story will connect with plenty of little readers and listeners. Yarashell Abbily is a precocious girly-girl who starts her day off with a routine: She gets up, stretches, and starts to get ready for the day. But what’s a girl to do when there are so many options for outfits? Go through everything, then leave it all over her room, of course! Yarashell Abbily gets a great reward for a 3-year-old for her eventual efforts to clean up - and turning cleaning up into a game is just the trick to get the mess under control. For the readers who like to read out loud, author Sybrina Durant writes the story with an easy rhyme that is fun to read. The story is not wordy, so it’s not intimidating for budding readers. The illustrations are soft and colorful. They are reminiscent of anime cartoons to me - big eyes and lots of color. While I enjoyed the story, I think my favorite part about this book is how Durant came up with Yarashell Abbily’s name. I don’t want to reveal any details in my review. But as a mom to a little girl who has very adoring grandmothers, it is incredibly sweet. I would put this book in the hands of Fancy Nancy’s younger fans.
Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite Yarashell is a typical three-year-old young girl who loves to play and find the perfect outfit to wear in the morning, but Yarashell makes a very big mess in doing so and never wants to clean it up. Yarashell believes her messy room is a work of art, and there is no need to change it. When her mommy is displeased with the way her room looks, she calls her daddy to come in and see. Will Yarashell have to clean up her room when her daddy sees the mess? Yarashell Abbily and Her Very Messy Room by Sybrina Durant is a delightful and charming children's book that introduces young readers to a sing-song rhyming story dialog, along with a fun, entertaining game to learn responsibility when cleaning their room. Children are messy by nature. They can make a clean room a disaster area in a matter of minutes and not think twice about cleaning up after themselves. Author Sybrina Durant and illustrator Sara Wilson have created an exciting, interactive text with brightly colored, creative pictures for young readers to read, learn, and sing along with and a useful resource guide for parents to teach young children to pick up after themselves. Children are attracted to and learn more from a rhyme or a song because it is easier for their developing brains to remember. Sybrina Durant has devised not only a way for children to have an entertaining reading experience, but also creates a fun parent-child potential bonding period. This book is great for parents, teachers, and young readers to enjoy.
This is the tale of a little girl and her very messy room. Yarashell is your average three-year-old who jumps out of bed each morning with a spring in her step and a song in her heart. She tears through her dresser, and her closet, looking for the right outfit to wear (it just happens to match the outfit of one of her dolls). Her room is now a mess, because Yarashell has tossed clothes everywhere in her search for the right outfit. Mom walks in, and she is not very happy. Yarashell can't explain it, but says that she enjoys messing up her room. Dad is called in, to see if he can help. Can Dad convince (and not tell) Yarashell to clean up her room? This book is made to be read to the average three- or four-year-old, especially those who are in the "messy room" stage. It helps when the author dedicates the book to her four granddaughters, who each had a messy room when they were Yarashell's age. Yes, this book is really worth the money.
