Marie Kondo Has A Children's Book Which Encourages Kids To Tidy Up

Marie Kondo has changed the way many adults clean and organize their homes, and now she wants to spark joy in your children's lives as well. The Queen of Tidy who wrote the bestseller "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and even parlayed her love of tidying into her own Netflix series wants to help your children learn the joy of tidying up as well.

Kondo announced she was releasing a children's book titled Kiki & Jax: The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship that she has co-written with children's book author Salina Yoon, who also provides the illustrations. Kondo announced the upcoming book release on her Instagram account writing that the story of Kiki and Jax is "a timeless story about friendship," before adding, "I hope that the characters of Kiki and Jax will inspire children and families to tidy and embrace joy!" We're sure parents are hoping the same thing!

In a post about the book Yoon explains that while Kiki is a collector, Jax is a sorter, but "the one thing they always agree on is how much fun they have together." The two friends quickly find out that things are starting to get in the way of their friendship and they have to discover if they can make room for each other since it's their friendship that has truly sparked joy for each of them.

While this is Kondo's first children's book, she's no stranger to the world of publishing. The mother of two has previously written four books detailing her KonMarie method of tidying up, asking people to only keep the things that "spark joy" in their lives.

Kondo knows that tidying up is a family affair, and previously told the Wall Street Journal that children as young as 1 year old can begin to help around the house by keeping things tidy. “You can let your children take on a challenge when they turn about 1-year-old after they learn how to walk,” she said.

Kiki & Jax, The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship will hit bookstores and booksellers on November 5, but you can pre-order now to make sure you don't miss picking it up. Any book that can not only encourage your child to read but to also start tidying up themselves is well worth the sticker price!
