Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just a Mess (Little Critter) by Mercer Mayer This book is about how the main character was going to play baseball but he couldn’t find his mitten.

He looks one last time and …… I recommend this book to kindergartners and first graders because there are smaller words for them to read.I felt they could have incorporated better organization skills by having his mother model correct cleaning habits
