Sam needs to clean up his toys, but he becomes distracted by all the different ways he can sort them. He sorts by color, shape, pattern and rhyming words. The author adds humor by including pages with things Sam might bite if they were real versus things that would bite Sam if they were real. Each illustration features plenty of details for young readers to look at over and over again, and the paper collage style gives each page a variety of textures. This is a really engaging concept book with a fun narrative. (Megan Crews) Up to 7
