Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A sequel to the author's Family Storytimes (1999), this volume contains 24 programs, each lasting 30 minutes, that promote learning readiness and reading skills. Reid has tested the programs himself and convincingly explains his rationale for including entire families in his storytimes. Each program is clearly laid out, beginning with a Program at a Glance section that outlines the entire 30 minutes, from opening song, through story and poetry selections, musical activities, to closing song. This is followed by Preparation and Presentation,   detailing each song, story, or poem, with source listings and annotations. Mix and Match sections give alternate books that work with the given theme, and each program ends with a listing of alternate, applicable musical selections. Clearly presented and easy to follow, this is an excellent resource for librarians who want to come up with winning story hours that have broad appeal.--Welton, Ann Copyright 2009 Booklist"
