(I'd like to add a note here to gently remind everyone that we HAVE to get rid of books sometimes. They fall apart, they get 'crummy' looking, and sometimes they've just had their time. Plus, that's how we make room for shiny new books!)
Anyway, our project didn't work last time because everyone wanted us to keep everything! So this year, I've had to make some hard decisions, but there are always those books that are in good shape, and are still relevant today. And I want to keep them. Even though you guys haven't taken them out in a LONG TIME! Hence, the Books That Need Love bin.
So here are a few of the titles in the bin that I'd like to highlight. They are great books, and sometimes they just don't get love because they are on a low shelf or maybe they don't fit into any specific categories so we don't often put them on display.
Come check out the books that NEED LOVE!!!
You can't go wrong with illustrations by Simms Taback.
This reminds me of my childhood, so I can't get rid of it. Take it out!
If you've ever sung this song to a child, they'll want to see it illustrated.
A party with a crocodile, elephant, and hedgehogs? C'mon!
