Thanks Jamie for taking the time to share your feedback. Glad you like the little labels too. This system has worked great for me for all of my teaching years, so I hope you find something similar!
Hello! I am a new kindergarten teacher this year so my library is very small and simple--I was hired on back-to-school night so haven't had lots of time to organize my library as it's all I can do to keep up with the daily needs! My categories right now are very general--fiction, non-fiction, seasons and holidays, & counting and ABCs. (I also have "animals" but you already have a label for that.)
I was wondering if you could create some more general labels (or send me an editable version of your labels so I could do it for myself) using the same pictures and ideas you already have--like "science" with the pictures for weather, plants, and space; and "holidays" with the pictures for various holidays, "seasons" with the pictures of all 4 seasons, etc. That would be a huge help for newbies like me who don't yet have enough books to be able to sort our libraries so specifically! I would be willing to pay a few dollars for your extra time.
Thank you for your inquiry. At this time, I am not able to complete your request.

Leslie- Love the Library overhaul! Also have enjoyed watching the kiddos put things back where they belong! I was wondering, how/if you can adapt the basket label as well as the book labels. I have a few that I don't like how they fit anywhere else (Ex: Disney, Olivia, Pinkalicious are just to name a few). Thanks for the product and any info!
Hi, I usually would put pinkalicious into the "fun and silly" category or if they become classics in your classroom, I'd add those. I've even created a basket that rotates quickly in our classroom and added just a "books we love" label and those come from all other baskets but are ones we read and reread a lot as a class and love. Perhaps your Disney books would fit into the classics or fairy tales? You're welcome!
