Any person who works in a library knows the pain of mistreated books. Having a book returned that has been waterlogged, chewed on, ripped, or colored in and no person to confess to the damage. Teaching children at a young age to appreciate library books is such an important lesson.
I ran across this coloring book featuring a favorite pigeon which would be a perfect way to begin teaching children the importance of treating things carefully. This would work well with a storytime, passive programming, a class visit, or to use at home not only for those library family’s but for those kids who love this loud bird.
