    It’s classified! With intricate artwork and refreshingly simple language, Neil Packer’s introduction to the many ways of ordering things will thrill the detail-oriented among us.

    Meet Arvo. Now look at his family tree. Meet his cat, Malcolm, and check out Malcolm’s family tree, too. Whether people or cats, buildings or books, food or vehicles, there’s a category for everything. And in this mesmerizing narrative introduction to taxonomy, readers follow Arvo through his day to learn about the order of the animal kingdom, to his music lesson to help categorize instruments, and across town to classify cloud formations he sees along the way. Neil Packer’s detailed illustrations and simple narrative are perfect for readers who itch to classify and find order in their daily lives.

What the jury said:
“This book takes the child collector’s joy in sorting and classifying and brings it to life in this novel contribution to the non-fiction scene that can afford its readers years of pleasurable reading. This inventive take on taxonomies and sorting conventions can be read at many levels; from learning about the way things are classified, to the diverging and converging ways in which the decisions made to sort them are made. For most of the book, the objects in the illustration take center stage, then the text in the rich and beautifully laid out appendix encourages further exploration. Neil Packer's illustrations that employ modified photographs and precise scientific drawings invite readers to pay attention to the fine nuances that give each object its uniqueness and character. The extraordinary production of this large format book gives the reader a warm aged feel, and evokes the aesthetics of all sorts of curated collections, from museums to shoeboxes under children’s beds.

From School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-This book uses a simple narrative about a pale-skinned boy named Arvo to teach young readers about counting and sorting. Each double-page spread presents a classification analysis related to Arvo and his life. The first page details Arvo's family tree, which can be traced back to his great-great-grandparents. Each part of the family tree is labeled with the family member's connection to Arvo and the percentage of DNA that they share. The next page shows Arvo's cat Malcolm and Malcolm's family tree. Other pages discuss and sort objects such as vehicles, buildings, tools, and cheese. Each classification exercise offers a treasure trove of information. The mixed-media artwork uses cut-out images, conveying an aesthetic that appears both classical and modern. Some of the members of Arvo's extended family are depicted with brown skin. Arvo's story is at the center of all of the classifications, but the classifications are the real highlight. VERDICT Recommended for any library. Readers will understand the basics of genealogy through a straightforward narrative.-Debbie Tanner, S D Spady Montessori Elem., FLα(c) Copyright 2011.

An excellent resource for introducing the concept of scientific classification, this title invites readers to pore over its pages and consider their own ideas about how to organize our world.
