👧🏿👦🏼Age group: Elementary (Grades K-6th)
📖Theme: This book highlights the importance of being organized, as well as shining a spotlight on individual differences.
💻Summary: Cletus and Bocephus are cousins, but nothing alike. Cletus is extremely creative, but can’t find anything in his room. Since he is so disorganized, Cletus is constantly losing things and is very messy. His cousin Bocephus is the complete opposite. Bocephus is very organized, but if he ever misplaces anything he completely freaks out. After Cletus’ mother refuses to let him play with Bocephus until he cleans up his room, Bocephus takes charge and helps his cousin sort through his stuff and put it where it goes.

⭐️My Impressions & Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love the practice application of the strategies outlined in this book. The visuals and lists provide a model for students. Therapists and educators can easily take these strategies to support students organize their desks, lockers, folders and stack of papers!
