Reviews - What do customers think about The Shelf Elf?
Informative & Fun! Jan 29, 2008
I must say that I was quite pleased to receive this book so quickly, which was in the "Nick of time" for Christmas! My youngest children enjoyed the story, but I think the fact that it focused on the library classification system made it not quite as interesting for casual reading. I am going to donate this book to my daughter's kindergarten teacher or school media specialist. I feel that it is an excellent teaching story of the library and how it is organized, and it makes this somewhat dull topic fun. The fact that it comes with lesson plans makes it that much better for the elementary classroom.
elf on the shelf with Library Lessons Dec 25, 2007
Very nice book! Loved it. Very good idea to help children learn to use their libraries effectively. GREAT idea!
I Use In My School Library May 5, 2007
I loved the book and have "shelf elf helps out"and ordered the matching shelf elf plush and golden shelf elf trophy (less than $2.00, made of foam) to go with it. We now have a "golden shelf elf award" every week for 1-3rd and 4-6th grade. Keeps them motivated to keep things quiet, tidy and neat! It's posted outside our Library door where everyone can see it... NPO, Boise
I WANT THIS ELF ON MY SHELF ... Jan 29, 2006
This is a fine book for children. It has everything ... fun, excitement, magic and a big dose of education ... education not crammed down a child's throat, but presented with help from the magical, lovable elves.
Children learn library etiquette from this book ... valuable knowledge when they're first learning to read that will make their library adventures much more enjoyable.
A fine and different Christmas picturebook tale Nov 4, 2005
The Shelf Elf deserves recommendation as a fine and different Christmas picturebook tale. Skoob the Shelf Elf just finished his work with the shoemaker and is ready to start on a new career in the library - but first he must learn Library Etiquette. From book care to behavior, Skoob finds there's more to learn about a library than how to locate a book - and he's determined to win the Golden Shelf Elf Award in the process. A rhyming text paired with Rebecca Thornburgh's fun drawings invites kids to learn more about the library.
