Ds loved to listen to FLYlady! I think the book was her original (Sink Reflections). I checked it out from the library and would just open to different chapters and read out loud to him. He requested that book daily for a few weeks and wanted to have conversations about things like, "Mama, why can't you clean clutter?" He also adopted her language about sending items that we don't use to "Bless someone else's home."
We did this in December and he did a great job of willing letting go of (purging) a bunch of toys from the playroom to bless others. This was at the same time that Dh and I were trying to model letting go of things as well. Of all the things we sent out, he only misses one set of toys. I considered stopping him from giving those away, but didn't want to dampen his spirit or have him feel like I was second-guessing him. So, now we talking about the fact that since he really does miss those, we can look to reacquire some for him (a set of tools).
ETA: The Berenstien Bear's also have a book on "Too Many Toys" and one about having the "Gimmies." It drives me nuts that Papa bear is portrayed as such a dunce, but those are the two kids books that came to mind.
