The Berenstain Bears and the Messy Room

The Berenstain Bears

From the last page:

And Papa had been right too. It was so much more enjoyable to live in a neat, clean, well-organized room--and so much more relaxing!

It wasn't as exciting to open the big storage closet now, but it was much more practical--and a lot more fun!

Sounds like propaganda to me. What six-year-old was ever worried about how "relaxing" her room was? And boxes are supposed to be fun? How? I guess maybe you could read into it that it's now easier for the cubs to find what they're looking for, so they can play games or whatever without searching, but I'm just not feeling it.
