Read It, Don't Eat It! by Ian Schoenherr

The Dos and Don'ts of library books for the small crowd.

What I thought: As a children's librarian, I can't help but love this book. The advice is simple, the illustrations charming--a step up from pastel colors and judicious use of white space. I also love the humor. For example, "dogear" gets you a picture of a dog. "Magic" get you a rabbit.

Story Time Idea: This book would be great to use when introducing children to the library and books. Maybe read it every so often to reinforce how to care for a book.
