Booklist Review: "Gr. K^-1. This new simple rhyming story about Messy Bessey in the Rookie Reader series celebrates a family reunion in the park. All the Browns gather for a picnic feast and games and storytelling. Afterward Bessey sees the mess they've made and organizes everyone into a cleanup and recycling crew. Regan's clear, bright illustrations show the African American extended family having fun together across three generations.--Hazel Rochman"
