Teaching Library is a handy site for teachers who are looking for some lesson plan ideas to go along with children's books. The library features picture books, books for early readers, and books for young adults.
A teacher shares her book care bookmarks. ***Make sure you also look at the teacher-made book she refers to: Forest Friends Go to School: A Very, Very, Very Sad Story (With a Happy Ending!) Download it, print it, bind it, and have an awesome (and cheesy!) book care story in your arsenal. And you get to add the scribbles and smudges! :)
