Author Rob Reid's highly participative, "family-tested" material is organized by theme, with each of the twenty-four programs running about thirty minutes. Included are songs, picture book suggestions, poems, fingerplays, as well as a "Mix and Match" section to help you customize new programs around the same theme.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "An idea so old that it seems new again, family storytime at the public library is making a comeback. Librarians ready to try their own family programs will find in Reid's guidebook encouragement, practical advice, and 24 themes, complete with recommended and alternate selections in categories such as books, stories, poems, fingerplays, recorded music, songs, riddles, and videos. Recommended books are annotated, and other selections often include instructions or advice for presenting the material successfully. An excellent, practical handbook on the topic. --Carolyn Phelan"
