Books on Book Care &/or Library Etiquette

Suddenly children are looking glazed, teachers and librarians are looking shell-shocked, traffic has gone wonkier than usual and school supplies are flying off the shelves. Have people gone mad? Well, that may be beside the point, but it may simply be that it's back-to-school time again. That in mind, I've started yet another list (mayhap this dragon might someday get organized?), this time of books that can be used to help teach the care and handling of books and library etiquette, or just to introduce kids to the library. My humble beginnings of this list are on the sidebar. If you have any favorites, please chime right in. Here's to a great start to the new school year!!!


  1. I liked I took My Frog to the Library by Eric Kimmel. I used old beanie baby animals and put them around my library where the animals went in the book. . .for example, the frog jumps on the checkout desk so I put frogs on the checkout desk. The kids looked around the library to find the animals as we read the story. (It has an illustration of a card catalog, so I had to explain that that was on the computer now, though)

    What Happened to Marion's Book by Brook Berg is a great book for little ones in talking about book care.

  3. Hey, thanks for including "Marion" in this list!
