I ordered these pouches several times from the end of last school year and the beginning of this school year. I agree that the yellow and green do not hold up as well as the red & blue pouches. They are also expensive and should include a name tag insert being that the clear plastic slot is there and names are shown in the picture - it should be the given. Good product - just need to make sure that the quality of the product is the same no matter what color or sell at discounts if they are "irregular".

Beware of the Yellow Pouches! :(
These were the perfect book pouches for my firsties this past year...or so I thought. I took them home to clean over the summer and was so sad to realize that the inside lining of all the yellow pouches was completely falling apart. It was a very expensive year of pouches. Green, Red and Blue have held up well though.

Medium Book Pouches
I use these with my Reading Recovery students to take books back and forth from school to home. I machine wash them when they get dirty or at least at the end of every year. They wash fairly well and hold up for about 2-3 years.

Instead of backpacks
Perfect for Pre-K and Kindergarten students, for whom backpacks are really not suitable.MH

Durable and practical
I have purchased these book pouches for several years for my 1st graders to take their weekly homework back and forth from school. The homework includes a hardcover book and a paperback "Just Right" book, so it's nice to have these sturdy pouches to hold everything in one place. I started out with the Clearview pouches because I liked the idea of being able to see what was inside, but as it turns out, the plastic that is used for the clearview part of those bags really cracks and falls apart by the end of the year, if not sooner. So I bought these, thinking I could use them for more than one year and save money. The only thing I noticed, however, is that the lighter colored bags (yellow and green mostly) get marked up just with the occasional pencil/pen mark or 1 or 2 kids who write a word here or there. They don't look good enough to re-use. I will be re-using the red and blue, and next time will just order the book pouches in a single, dark color, probably blue.Overall, excellent quality and very
