It's Library Day!

Scholastic Parent & Child;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p63
The article presents information on ways by which an interest for books can be created in the mind of children. A trip to the library is a multisensory experience that engages all the best ways young children learn, from the solidity of a book in their hands and the visual stimulation of colorful illustrations to the smell of the pages and the excited, hushed voices of other readers. Children should learn at an early age not to harm or disrespect books. Parents should teach the proper way to handle library property no holding books with dirty hands, bending the cover or pages, scribbling, or tearing.
