The Book

Everyone knows that things get lost and things get found. This is the simple message of "Lost Things".  This often happens in life and you know what?  It's just as it should be.  

Lost things like a hair ribbon, a pencil, a dog leash vanish!  Someone or something other than the owner discovers the missing item and repurposes it for their very own need or enjoyment.  

When you mislay something it causes anxiety and stress.  When you have searched everywhere possible to retrieve it and realize that it's gone forever you can comfort yourself by thinking that perhaps  someone else found it and is happily using it for an entirely different purpose than what it was intended for.  The author highlights that oftentimes it's not your fault that something goes ... poof... gone but it is important how you respond to that loss. 

The pale colour pallet is soft and calming.  The misplaced objects are portrayed in orange so clever little readers can spot them easily.  The story lends itself to opening up conversations about something that the reader may have lost and a discussion of all the possibilities of who may have found it and what might happen to it next.  It's an interesting, fun story that I am sure kids will enjoy.
