Disorganization in children is common. But teaching children skills to get organized at a young age will set them up for success later in life! Children who learn organization skills tend to be better planners, have fewer missed or late assignments, and may have better time management skills.

Braden's brother Blake is ALWAYS losing things and everyone acts like it's his fault. What's the big deal? He's just a kid!

But when Blake's lack of organization leads to a forgotten field trip permission form, and the missing class pet is found dwelling in his desk debris, Blake starts to realize that maybe it's more of a problem than he thought. With the help of Blake's teacher and support of his parents, he's taught the steps to getting organized by using his favorite sport: baseball! Will Blake hit a home run by getting organized? And can he help Dad find a home for his misplaced wallet? Find out in another of Bryan Smith's hilarious tales of teaching life skills for children in grade K through 5, part of the Executive FUNction book series.
