Read It, Don't Eat It!


You are holding a book.

What should you do with it?

Open it, and you will find out.

To come.

In a picture book sure to make every librarian’s heart sing, Schoenherr has created a simple rhyming primer on how to take good care of a library book. While the subject may seem didactic, the author/illustrator’s charming approach will entice parents and professionals to share this title with young kids. Each spread features one simple admonition on the verso with an animal demonstrating the dreaded - or encouraged - behavior, rendered with gentle humor.... The book is simple enough to use with preschool children and funny enough to be appreciated by early readers.
— School Library Journal (starred review)

Simple, direct and knowingly funny, this book is worthy of a permanent spot on the desks of youth librarians everywhere.
— Publishers Weekly

This relaxed and rhyming recitation of rules can make library orientations for young patrons less daunting and more fun.
