I don't think you're being paranoid. I do the same thing (and that would mean I'M paranoid!) You have an objective, a special purpose for those books and they need to be there when you need them. What I do is try and collect another copy and put it out after I use it for read aloud or even guided reading. (I have some multiple copies) Do you have enough books for the students? Maybe you feel like they don't have enough. You could just hit the used book stores and garage sales to beef up your library area instead.

out too quickly, or that it won't be a "surprise" as we start thinking aloud
together in guided practice. Am I just way too paranoid? I would love for
the students to have access to the best of the picture books, but those are
the ones in my hidden basket! What kind of rules have you set up with your
students? Are there any books that you save for some lessons? Thanks for your
