This was the product of a stay-at-home-dad trying to teach his kids to clean up. I had three little boys leaving things all over the house all the time. Then I hired Pack Rat Pat. He joined our family along with his friend Safe House Mouse and started teaching my boys about cleaning up their junk! Whatever was left out was taken by Pack Rat Pat.
We really liked the "Pigeon" books by Mo Willem during this phase of my kids life and we designed this book after that style. Simple illustrations with a rhyming story the whole way through.
The book has a simple message: Clean up your things or they'll be gone in the morning. (But don't lose hope...there's a way to get them back).
Parents, this works. I've had many a friend tell me stories of kids sobbing before bed because they forgot to clean up and knew Pack Rat Pat was coming. Guaranteed to be a great investment.
The book eventually led to a song titled "Pack Rat Pat" on The Boo Hoo Crew's first album "Jelly & Peanut Butter". Give it a listen. It's a fun little jazz diddy!
