" 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.

" A straight forward approach to taking care of books. A statement is on one page and an illustration on the other. It reads more like a non-fiction title than a picture book title. If sharing with littles, it would be important to talk through the incidents and better decisions. (There are also some terms that can be unknown for youngster, so those will need to talked through as well.)Theme: LibrarianAdditional themes: books, book careReviewed from a library copy. " said.

" The book has a great message and attempts to lay out all of the rules that go along with how to take care of library books, but I think some of the words are a bit lofty for the intended audience, in this case my 2 year old. My son was more excited about the animals in the book and copying what they were doing on each page, so the illustrations truly made him want to do everthing he wasn't supposed to. We will be returning the book just like the book outlines to do. " said.

"I loved this book! Each page spread has a lesson about how to treat library books with an illustration. The lessons were funny to an adult because we know better, but made this a great book for teaching small children how to treat books. I think these would make a great series of posters for a children's room on how to treat books, even though I didn't love the animals in the illustrations. My favorite was the fox who was censoring. The one of the elephant blowing its nose reminded me of the beginning of Ghostbusters (with the slime on the card catalog). " said.
