" A cute picture book about library (and general) book manners. I especially thought it was great how the page, in the copy I read through, about not ripping pages (because they don't magically heal) was ripped. I thought it really added something to the experience. " said.

" Best for kids ages 4 and upEarly Literacy Skills: Print Motivation, Print Awareness, Letter Knowledge, Narrative SkillsFrom cover:You are holding a book. What should you do with it? Open it, and you will find out.Colorful bok with cute illustrations about how to treat books, especially library books. " said.

" I LOVE this book! I use it at story time, to elementary class presentations, and offer it up to parents who come in to pay for library books that their children have destroyed. The book is a simple, rhyming, funny book about the proper care of books. Hmmm, I can think of a few GROWN UP patrons that I could give this book to! " said.

" Animals demonstrate how NOT to treat books.Guaranteed a giggle or two from students along with protests on the animals' behavior.This would be a great book for a library orientation. Also, it would be good paired with the book Wild About Books and have students create their own rules for any animals who visit the library. " said.

" Media Specialists will love teaching with this book at the beginning of the school year. It has rhyming advice on how to take care of a library book. Explains how borrowing and taking care of books works. This is great for Pre-K and Kindergarten because it says more with pictures than words. Very short book, but will spark good discussion. " said.

" Used this book for my Kindergarten lesson on how to take care of library books. Cute illustrations and simple text. Recommend to children that if they like this book, and the characters, they could check out "Don't Spill the Beans", also by Ian Schoenherr. It's good opportunity to explain what authors are, how you can pick one you like and find more books. Ditto for book characters. " said.

" I think that this is a great book to teach kids who are new to libraries (be it public or school) what to do and not do with their books. That being said, there are a couple of pages that I don't agree with..."leave no trace (or at least erase). I teach my kids at school to not write in the books at all. If they need to mark something, use a post it! Also the "don't censor, delete or deface" page is probably too advanced. Otherwise, I plan on purchasing this book for my school library. " said.

" (Edit 7 years later as Goodreads says I first read this in Sept 2009 ...)Apparently I'm losing my mind because I didn't remember ever seeing this one before. Came to Goodreads and there it was. I like it more now than I did then.Another meh.CUTE pictures. Would have purchased them as maybe some posters for visual reference during lessons.But it just didn't work as a book for me. No story. " said.
