Q: I've got a good question about preserving an old children's book. This book was one of my dad's favorites when he was a boy and he's passed it on to our daughter. One of the wheels has come off, the cover has separated and it's generally a bit too fragile for everyday reading. We're wondering if anyone out there has a clever idea for preserving this bit of family history – maybe a way to make it into artwork or, better yet, allow it to be read and enjoyed again!
