I got around to making a book hospital and I'm so glad I did.
My library consists of hundreds of books. Every so often they start to fall apart. When this happens my kids freak out! They stop everyone around them and come and get me to fix it for them that very second. This will happen no more thanks to this:
It's a book hospital! So when a child finds a book that needs some repairs, they can put it in this bin and I can fix it when there is time.
Here is a side view. I wanted it to match my Box Tops holder I made a few weeks ago. This was my FIRST time using Mod Podge. It was tricky but not as difficult as I thought it was going to be.
This is what it started as:
It's just a book bin from Lakeshore.
This is where my inspiration came from:
I love that this tool gives my kids the chance to be problem solvers. They get a ripped book in their hand and they know what to do with it. Just in case they don't, a friend is always around to guide them towards the book hospital. This is definitely an organization/classroom management idea I recommend to all my friends!
