Sweet Book Summary:
An amusing little story about how to take care of books from the library. Starting with "Read it, don't eat it," this book will have your pre-schooler belly laughing. Along with each instruction there is a cuddly animal demonstrating what NOT to do. For instance, my personal favorite, "Be careful with it at the pool" features a lovable hippo and toucan trying to balance on a raft with a book. My five-year old couldn't get enough of it! Read this story for enjoyment, and as a reminder to be kind to books. Even my young bibliophile, who loves his books more than anything, needs a reminder every once in a while to be gentle with them.
