(6 customer reviews)

By Margaret Sullivan
Illustrated by Scot Ritchie

Jacinta carefully manages her environment and belongings – everything has to be placed just right, in the right place. On an outing with her father, she has a chance meeting with an overturned oil can, and learns to see rainbows where she once saw an awful mess. A visit to their car mechanic shows her that there can be efficiency in what first looks like raw chaos.

  3. Chuck Gonzales, author and artist of the Carlos Gomez graphic novel series

    “Margaret Sullivan’s charming book, Jacinta’s Orderly World, shows us that there is also beauty and order in imperfection.”

  4. Jen Lafler, mother of three, grade two teacher and board member of the school district of Encinitas, California

    “Young people sorting their way through this beautiful, messy thing called ‘life’ will recognize a delightful new friend, or perhaps a comforting long time one, in Jacinta and her quietly remarkable story.”

  5. Jamie Wollam, father, music teacher and songwriter/drummer for Tears for Fears

    “Wholly engaging both for the reader and the listener.
    There’s a bit of Jacinta in every child, and every child will feel relief to know that it is alright to want to manage your little piece of the world.”

  6. Jan Chindlund, volunteer, life-long learner, retired Head of Libraries, Columbia College Chicago

    “Children seek ways to understand their world. One way is to create an environment they can control. Jacinta does just that, but learns that order is relative and unique to each being. What a delightful tale about the mind of a delightful child. And the whimsical illustrations bring the story to life.”
