Kiki and Jax
The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship
Tidying superstar Marie Kondo brings her unique magic to Kiki and Jax, a charming picture book story about how tidying up can spark joy in the lives of young children.
Kiki and Jax are best friends - Jax enjoys sorting but Kiki enjoys collecting and gathers a lot of stuff. Soon her home is full of things all over the place. Where is Kiki's ball? What did she do with her swimsuit? Her home has become an obstacle course and it's hard for Kiki and Jax to play together. But Jax has a plan - he teaches Kiki how to sort everything and to keep only those things that spark joy.
Once she and Jax have tidied up, Kiki has room in her life for those things that matter the most - especially Jax!
