Next time I will put in another set of pockets on the other side, too. I am using it for my work bag right now.
And...Speaking of work:
I love this book! It is fun and full of iteresting but simple information. I used it for story time, put it in the library center next to a bowl of real snail shells (from escargot we actually ate) and some plastic snails. Though I think I was much more excited about the experience than my students. they prefer ACTION!! and the display was overlooked.(except the real shells, the "robbers" hid them in the blocks)
