The school requires every student to cover and label the books every year. I bought some book cover to use for the hardbound books and I use the brown paper to use for the soft covered ones.
The good thing about buying the book covers is that they can reuse it every year as long as it doesn't get tore up. Ms. Burrito maintained her book covers in great condition so we used it again this year.
The label products that I reviewed from Avery helped me label their book's title and their names on it.
I watched the video on youtube on how to cover a book without using a tape and I am glad I did as it saved me from using the Scotch tape I bought.
