It's clean up time for Gio

Motivating young children to tidy up the toys is not always an easy job. So when, in the middle of free play time, Gio decides that's it's time to tidy up, Estrellita supports and encourages him instead of stopping or re-directing him. By respecting his intrinsic motivation to be helpful, Estrellita shows Gio that his contributions to the group are accepted and valued.
