“An enlightening story about a little girl named Nika who didn’t want to take care of her clothes and toys. One hazy morning when Nika opened her closet, she discovered that it was empty. Her clothes had disappeared! What had happened to her shirts and pants? Where did her favorite dresses, coats, and socks go? Why did they leave her with just her pajamas on this misty morning? Will they come back? Taking a closer look at her room, Nika starts thinking about her attitude toward her clothes and toys. “How easy it is to lose something you love so much.” She learns an important lesson at the end of this story. Watch your children have a blast reading this story while learning valuable lessons.”

Runaway Clothes by Mrs. D. was a true delight to read! I could just picture in my mind how this little girl thought when she opened her closet and all her clothes were gone! The hangers didn’t feel appreciated and they let her know that!

This is truly a pure fantasy read, yet this little girl comes to understand that she has not been nice to her clothes or her toys. The book has beautiful pictures with full page color illustrations. Children can visualize the little girl, her messy room, very sad toys and angry hangers. Not only that but the hangers speak to the girl. All living and non-living things speak. The girl finally understands how her clothes, toys, and belongings felt. She folds her clothes neatly, hangs up the items to be hung, picks up her toys, and finishes a doll house so that the dolls could move in. Children need to learn the right way of taking care of their things, books, toys and clothes. Five stars! I received this book in return for an honest review.
