Did you ever stop to think about how a book feels when you mistreat it? Enter into the life of a book in the charming children's picture book, Angry Books by Tacee Theobald. Meet Book. He doesn't look particularly special; just an old book with a torn page. Or maybe he is a book bent with much use or old age. Discover how a book feels when you leave it outside in the sun while you go play, or how it feels when you accidentally drop it into the sink after going to the bathroom. Find out how he feels when you scribble in his pages, tear him up, or get him sticky with food. Explore the importance of the care and keeping of books with help from Book. Learn why we don't dog-ear the pages, or remove a book's dust jacket. Book only has one question for you. How would you feel?

Angry Books by Tacee Theobald is an adorably illustrated picture book with an important message: take care of your books! I loved this story. It teaches children how to take proper care of books through drawings. By showing the young reader what not to do to a book, it then asks the child how they would feel or what they would do if the role was reversed. The text is engaging and the illustrations help children to fully understand the message. Sergio Drumond did an excellent job of illustrating this book. The text and story flowed perfectly, complementing each other beautifully. Covering all the do's and don'ts of book care, the story uses humor and captivating pictures to help the young reader learn the best practices of taking care of our Biblio friends.
