Not just a sourcebook or a reference, but a complete multimedia guide, this innovative, comprehensive resource will help you stimulate the minds of your youngest patrons with rhymes, songs, fingerplays, books, and other creative activities. The engaging materials and methods in this book are equally useful for experienced children’s librarians looking for new ideas and new librarians starting to build their own program for the very young. Through researching the latest in early learner and developmental theories, Ernst
  • Carefully details the physical, mental, emotional, and social development of children 12 to 24 months
  • Guides you through using Lapsit programming to perform effective outreach to all segments of your community
  • Shows how to build and maintain effective partnerships with caregivers, child-care providers, early childhood educators, and others
  • Offers tips for seeking funding for early childhood services
A detailed Web Extra provides further ideas and instructional techniques not featured in the book. Included are a bibliography of chapter resources, a list of rhyme lyrics that appear in the book, full-page sample handouts and templates, and 47 video clips featuring rhymes and activities that encourage audience interaction, performed by the author.
