My Closet Threw a Party by Robyn Parnell


My Closet Threw a Party by Robyn Parnell

Artist Jimmy Pickering--a creative force at both Universal and Disney Studios, and an illustrator whose storybooks have been called imaginative...and endearing ( School Library Journal ) and clever ( Publishers Weekly )--fashions wild and whimsical pictures that bring out all the fun in Robyn Parnell's unique tale.
My closet threw a party
And I heard it was a hit.
The clean clothes played with stinky
And my pants danced till they split.
Just watch how happily the clothes will play--especially when they're all in a tangle and not put neatly away! In fun and fanciful verse and wacky, colorful pictures, a quite unusual party comes brightly to life in a little girl's cluttered closet and messy room. It's quite a sight, starting early in the night, and simply everyone is there. What with the sneakers leading a game of charades and the checkered flannel nightie cheerfully doing a cha-cha, it's a fest kids won't forget.
But oh, when Mom comes in and finds a world of disorder and piles on the floor, who will clean it up?

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
