schoolbook covers


Back to school time can send a shiver down any parents spine. It's not the packed lunches or rushed mornings we fear- it's the pile of school books to be covered!

After a couple of years (and lots of tears) covering books with contact paper I decided to invest in some re-usable book covers.

But I am curious to know, what is the best way to cover schoolbooks? Do teachers have a differenct perspective than parents? Do you let your children influence your decision? Or does your school have any special rules?

I like those premade plastic covers you can buy that you just slip the book cover into. It saves having to redo them every term/year. My Mum used to save pictures from old calenders that I would put inside clear plastic covers so my books were decorated with beautiful landscapes.
Brown paper decorated with colourful collages, and then covered with clear contact paper look great, and are easy to keep clean.
Use contact/that clear cover stuff, and use a ruler to assist and to remove any bubbles that may lurk when undergoing this process.
This is a good question. When I was at school everyone in my class liked to draw their own doodles on their exercise books. Some teachers were happy for you to do this, but our maths/physics teacher strictly prohibited it, and you got told off for doing so. I once drew a picture of Albert Einstein writing EMC2 on a chalk bored, and he got angry. I think teachers like this really spoil the fun of learning.
Oh dear! Autocorrect strikes again Bryony.......'chalk BOARD'......lol!

Grrrr...
At our school, the kids design the covers and we then wrap them. I get this thick plastic instead of contact, and then you just wrap like a present over the covers. Much easier.
I used to recycle the old calendars or colourful magazines and use them as book covers.
My Mother covered my books in Brown Paper.
My Exercise Books she covered in Plastic.
Mum always did a beautiful job at it, & I followed same practice for my children.

When I used to read on train, commuting, always kept my novel in the plastic bag in which it was bought. That way, it stayed clean.
