Preparing storytime programs can devour the time of the even the most experienced children’s librarians, especially when several different age groups must be taken into account. Infants and toddlers, pre-readers, and emergent readers all have different needs, and who has time to dig through a multitude of resources to gather suitable programming materials? Roginski offers the perfect solution with this all-in-one planner for young children, providing everything needed for a year's worth of story room fun. Filled with ready-to-use programs for winter, spring, summer and fall on themes children know and love, this handy volume

  • Presents materials perfectly tailored to each group, including ideas for infants, traditional story programs for children toddling toward kindergarten, and book clubs for emergent readers
  • Gives easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for each program, with suggested books, poems, activities, sound recordings, craft ideas, printable patterns, supply lists, and more
  • Features a special section on guiding children from reading along to reading alone, and other transitional programs

Librarians can take this amazingly useful resource right into the story room to encourage fun and learning the whole year round.
