Thanks to Tammie for sharing this fabulous idea. Here are her comments:
'We have had a rash of destroyed books lately, and my assistant said half in jest that we should have a book graveyard in the library so that the students could see firsthand the “horror” of not caring for library books. We got permission from our administrator to put it up as part of the Halloween display, and the conversations we’ve had with the students have been priceless. As young as first graders have been able to articulate that since someone didn’t make a good choice with their library book, the books were now “dead” and can’t be checked out anymore'.
