Excellent children’s storybooks for teaching organizing skills to your kids

by respaced on February 11, 2011

It’s important to teach children about organizing and how to take care of their things, particularly in this day and age when most children own so many things! Research has shown that children who are organized perform better in school. But how can we teach these skills to children in a way they can understand and remember? Here are a few Berenstain Bear storybooks that deliver this message in a fun, yet practical manner:

The Berenstain Bears and the Messy Room
“The room shared by Brother and Sister is a mess because the cubs argue over who should neaten up instead of working together.”  — Publishers Weekly
Perfect for teaching kids about taking responsibility for their own room.
Berenstain Bears and the Trouble with Chores
Watch what happens to Brother and Sister Bear’s room when they refuse to clean it up! Where will they play if their room is too messy? Teaches kids the very real results of letting toys pile up.
The Berenstain Bears Think of Those in Need
When there is too much stuff in the house, Mama Bear convinces the family that decluttering will not only free up space, it will also help those in need. What a great way to teach kids to let go of things!
