No book wants to live in the "Sad Bag"!

Our kindergarteners have started taking home books, which means they've taken on a big responsibility!  We spend a lot of time in class talking about how to take good care of their library books.  One thing I ask all the students to do is to find a special place at home to keep their library books whenever they're not reading them.  Not only does that make them easy to find, but it also protects them from getting damaged.  To illustrate this idea, I show the students the Sad Bag.  This is a big envelope that's filled with books that have gotten hurt.  They are sad because now they can't travel to students' homes, which is something all library books love to do!

All sorts of bad things can happen to books that aren't kept somewhere safe.  There are books in the Sad Bag that have been colored in, rained on, chewed up, ripped, cut with scissors, and drenched with fruit punch.  Oh no!  If you haven't already picked a safe, special place for library books in your house, it right now!!!
