Neat! <ul><li>“ There are a lot of books in our library.  Doesn’t it look neat?” </li></ul>
Wow! <ul><li>“ But think what would happen if the books were  THROWN  into a pile?” </li></ul>
Ugh! <ul><li>“ Or, what if the books were  STUFFED  into the bookcase?” </li></ul>

I’m going to miss recess! <ul><li>“ Who likes to dig through a mess?  Who has time?” </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ That’s why I’m so important!” </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ I mark a book’s place on the shelf while you look at it.  But let me start from the beginning.” </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ It takes time to find a good book to read.” </li></ul>
Me first! <ul><li>“ When you find a book that looks interesting, put me on the shelf next to it.” </li></ul>

<ul><li>“ Help!  I’m falling!  OUCH!” </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ Once you know I’m in place, then you can pull out the book.” </li></ul>
This spot is saved! <ul><li>“ While you look at a book, I’m saving your place on the shelf.”  </li></ul>
