Packy the Packrat's mother has had enough! It's time that he sorts through his ever-growing collection of trinkets and puts them away. Told in rhyme, the text leads the reader to participate in the sorting process by categorizing Packy's piles of things according to like characteristics and attributes. The story promotes and reinforces analogous thinking--a critical thinking skill in math, science, and life. In the "For Creative Minds" education section at the back of the book, the reader can explore even more attributes and characteristics of objects, including color, size, texture, shape, and material.

¡La madre de Paquito ha tenido suficiente! Este es el momento para que él clasifique su colección de chucherías, que está cada vez mas grande y las guarde en su sitio. Dicho en rima, el texto lleva al lector a participar en el proceso de clasificación, organizando según las características parecidas y sus atributos la gran cantidad de cosas de Paquito. La respuesta del lector será en rima, formando un sentido de anticipación. Las ilustraciones incluyen una trama secundaria muy graciosa de la hermana de Paquito, quien disfruta hurtar algunas de sus cosas para su propio placer. Los niños se relacionarán con la idea de tener una colección de objetos favoritos y sentirán la satisfacción que conlleva el examinar y admirar estas colecciones. La historia promueve y refuerza el pensamiento análogo, crítico importante para la habilidad en las matemáticas, las ciencias, y la vida.
