kids should keep books properly- Easy Tips by ZenParent
You and your kid must be really excited with new textbooks and notebooks for the new academic year. The new books smelling of fresh ink and paper in pristine condition would be a delight to both of you. Who wouldn’t want the books to remain like this all year long! Here’s how you can do it:1. Always use a good quality Wrapping Paper to cover all your text books and note books. This will protect them from crumpling and other wear and tear coming from repeated use.

3. Urge your kids to avoid folding top corners of books to leave a bookmark. Your younger kids will have to be taught deftness while pushing and pulling books in and out of their back packs, as careless handling while doing this can lead to corners curling up quite badly in a few months, making the books look shabby.
