How to coax your new book to lay flat

Exploring the World Through Cartography has a hard cover and sewn binding to help it last from K4 through high school, with multiple children! We expect these books to be well-loved, and over time they will open more readily and lay flat more easily without coming apart. However, you can help to break in your new book without damaging the spine by following these steps:

 Place the book with its back on a table.
Let the front cover down.
Then let down the back cover.
Open a few pages in the front.
Next open a few pages in the back. Continue to alternate opening pages front and back, pressing gently all along the spine until you reach the center pages of the book.
Do this two or three times to limber up the binding. If you open the book roughly or carelessly, you may break the spine, which may cause pages to come loose.
