Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Four animal friends--Rabbit, Hedgehog, Mouse, and Fox--love to read, but they have just about read to death the only book they have. Although they dearly love that book, they decide to go in search of more books although they have no idea where they might find them. When they stumble upon a book with something for everyone, they'd really like to keep it. But they can't since it has the name of its owner listed inside. Off they set, to do the right thing and return that book. But the owner isn't around, and they end up going inside his house and discovering all sorts of literary treasures. When Bear, the book's owner, returns, he is not happy, especially since one of the friends left a sandwich inside a book. Bear's annoyance starts to fade as he realizes that he and the other animals have something in common. Instead of hoarding his books, he decides to share them with the others. But there are a couple of important rules to keep in mind when reading the books. Not only does this book celebrate the love of reading and sharing that love with others, but it also suggests two helpful rules when using others' books. Teachers and parents could use this picture book as a humorous reminder not to eat while reading and to clean hands before touching a book or its pages. The illustrations highlight adorable animals as they peruse books. I have to say it is often hard for me to share books from my own collection because others don't return them or return them in shabbier shape than they left me. To my horror, I've even seen students underline sentences or dogear pages in library books. Perhaps reading this book would remind those would-be borrowers to take better care of the books they borrow. YIKES! This picture book gets its message across in charming fashion.
