Angry Books by Tacee Theobald

Genre: children's picture book
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

I loved this book. I think every parent and every elementary teacher should have this book. This story is told from the perspective of a book. It teaches children how to properly handle books. It not only explains what they should or shouldn't do but actually asks how would you feel if I did this to you. It makes them think about it in a way that they connect.  I teach middle school and I don't know how many times I say some of the very things to my middle school students. Let's start teaching kids at the youngest age how to treat a book.  My favorite in the whole book talked about fake reading. Yes, you can tell she was a former teacher. To all those kids out there who think you are getting away with it, forget it. She nailed it.
