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

This is a fun little book to share with class visits, or when going to the library with your toddler. It covers all the basic library etiquette rules: renew – don’t be overdue, don’t eat your books, borrow – don’t steal, etc. Each little rule is accompanied by a really fun illustration. An elephant sneezing on a book, cheeks bright red and puffy. A rabbit in a magician’s hat trying to magical fix rips and tears on a page. I’m kind of highlighting this book just for my own reference. The wording is so simple though, that’s mostly geared towards the preschool and younger group. Even then, I think a few 4 and 5 year olds might find it too simple, and would want something more advanced. But its a great way to introduce your baby or new toddler to the world of libraries and books and taking care of things you borrow and share with others.
