About the Book

Every year the librarian wants to tell the children how sad she gets when one of her friends is damaged by common accidents to books.  She lets seven books tell their story of how their lives changed when they were returned damaged. The book was reviewed with the comment: “While the pictures are colorful and reflect the text, they are childlike. This book will be a welcomed addition for librarians who want their patrons to know the importance of keeping books healthy. It is a learning tool for the young and a precautionary lesson for teachers and parents who borrow books for their children. RECOMMENDED.” (Library Media Connection, March/April 2011).

About the Author

Lidia has been a librarian at an elementary school for more than twelve years.  A few years ago she won a grant that moved her to "reach for the sky". Lidia entered a contest and her poem was published in a book.  She has also published library ideas in Library Media Connection magazine.  Lidia couldnt find a book that  gave books a voice and personality so she felt compelled to write one.
