The Day That Henry Cleaned His Room

The Day That Henry Cleaned His Room

The Day That Henry Cleaned His Room
Written and illustrated by:  Sarah Wilson
Published by: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 1990

The day that Henry cleaned his room, reporters came. It had been a year since anyone had seen the inside of Henry's room. Henry was the only one who knew the secret path from the door to his bed. "Okay, everybody out!" shouts Henry, and what follows is the funniest parade off the pages of a picture book!

* As we continue the bibliotherapy process to try to help the kids keep their rooms clean, we read this book. Henry's room hadn't been clean in over a year.  The day he attempts to clean his room, the reporters come.  I didn't like all of the animals that had made homes in Henry's room.  Similar to other books about messy rooms that we've read, this book shows that when you clean up your room you may find things that you thought you lost, presents from long ago, and things you didn't even remember you had!  While the kids thought the book was okay  I have to say that I wasn't a big fan of this book.

Family Rating:  So-so.
