"We Know How to Care For Books"

We know how to care for books.

Help them keep their brand new looks.

Turn the pages one by one.

Reading can be lots of fun.

Our hands are clean, our hands are dry.

We store our books on a shelf up high.

Keep books away from food or a pet.

Please make sure they never get wet.

If it's a scribble that you need.

Use a piece of paper.

A book is to read.

And if you borrow, remember please.

To bring your books back to the library.

We love to read our books like new.

We care for books and so should you!





Children exposed to reading may become curious, INDEPENDENT or even develop an IMAGINATION full of wonder.  In some cases children may get lost in a book reading quietly for hours.  Do not operate heavy machinary while reading.
