Sam Sorts

Sam Sorts. Marthe Jocelyn. 2017. 32 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Sam's things are in a heap. Time to tidy up.

Premise/plot: While trying to tidy up, Sam keeps getting distracted by 'having' to sort things. He doesn't "have" to sort things, he wants to sort things. He's fascinating by sorting. Each spread has Sam's things sorted in a different, particular way.

My thoughts: I know people who like to sort. I'm not really one of them! So this book didn't quite click for me personally. The part I could relate to best is when his sorting turns to playing. Now getting distracted by PLAYING I can get!
