Fix This Mess! by Tedd Arnold. I LIKE TO READ series. Holiday House, 2014. 32 pages.

  • Reading Level: Easy/Leveled Reader, ages 4-8
  • Maturity Level: 2 (ages 4-8)

Belly laughs from kindergartners make reading sessions so much more enjoyable, and Tedd Arnold delivers in this quirky picture-book-sized easy reader about a cleaning robot. Beginning at the title page, Arnold’s characteristic illustrations fill the pages and complement the simple text. The robot, a takeoff of the “Roomba” robotic cleaners, is called “Robug,” and he has a very different interpretation of the words “fix this mess!” than the dog protagonist does. Young readers will giggle their way through their reading of this little book, and parents may enjoy the subtle reminder that cleaning up after ourselves is important, even though it takes hard work.
