When I read this e-book to my 6 year old daughter and 12 year old son we had just moved and were surrounded by boxes and much of our other possessions were in storage. Understandably, the reading of the book was timely and helpfully added with gentle pressure to the process of decluttering 'stuff' from our lives. I work for a global children's charity and understand the needs all children face whether they live in contexts of poverty or plenty - all have needs for love and security. What I personally like about Clutter Cut Inc is the fact that, for once, we have a positive story of a father and son working together to do good in their local community. I hope that you enjoy it and are able to put it into practice too.

"Clutter Cut Inc"., by Lester Lex, is a cute picture book that deals with the problem of "toy clutter". These are toys that are no longer played with but are taking up space in the house and yard.
This book introduces children to the process of sorting toys, deciding which ones to find new homes for and then sharing with others.
Cloot had many, many toys - a lot he never used. Every space in his room was full of toys. They were in the drawers, under his bed and scattered all over his floor. Cloot had a storage shed in the yard that was also full of toys. Some were broken and some needed new batteries. It was a real mess.
One day Cloot's dad suggested that Cloot should give some of the toys away. At first, Cloot did not want to give any of the toys away. How would he choose which ones to give away? He finally came up with a plan to help him decide. Cloot gathered all his toys and spread them on the ground. His dad helped him choose toys to give to boys and girls at the hospital. They boxed them up and Cloot spent the afternoon giving them out.
Soon all the kids from the neighborhood were bringing their toys to share with the children in the hospital. Clutter Cut Inc. was a great success.
My favorite thing about this book is that it teaches young children how to decide what to keep and what to give away. This is a difficult skill to learn, even for big kids. This book goes through the process of sorting, choosing, boxing and giving things to others. If children learn this process at a young age, it will be so much easier to live a clutter-free life in adulthood.
Lex takes something that is most likely a problem for many families and helps children create a solution for it. While it's difficult to get the full effect of the artwork on my older version Kindle, the girls didn't seem to mind at all. Guillermo Piloto provided the illustrations for Clutter Cut, Inc. These zany illustrations did an excellent job of sharing the essence of the story. I like how we see some traditional toys-blocks, rubber ducky, and a teddy bear-alongside some odd toys (flying clock).
I look forward to more from Lester Lex in the future.
but this time I said why not take a look?
The history engaged me and its moral took me by surprise
not to mention how the images caught my eyes
Hope lots of kids and adults get exposed to it
and learn how to give away a little bit! ; )
