Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

This useful resource provides background, logistics, and a wealth of practical ideas for programs. Ernst describes brain development and language acquisition clearly, with quotes and references for support. She does a good job of tying the science to infant/toddler growth and explaining the librariana€™s important role in sharing the information with caregivers. She discusses broader factors to consider when planning baby-time programs, including community, facilities, staffing, and potential partnerships. A chapter of FAQs addresses typical concerns and potential barriers to successful events. The second half moves into actual program components. A dozen a€œReady-to-Goa€ programs offer complete scripts for events for newborn to 12-month-olds and 12- to 24-month-olds. Further chapters provide resources for readers to put together their own programs, including an annotated book list with many teller tips, more than 50 rhymes (also in audio versions on the attached CD), and a theme-based grouping of more than 300 books, many published within the last few years. The authora€™s experience, commitment, and enthusiasm come through as she examines every aspect of the topic, down to the level of recommended sizes for handouts (5.5 x 8.5 inches fits best in a diaper bag). She bolsters her suggestions with research and real-life examples, but never gets too rigid; she emphasizes the importance of adapting programs to match library goals and community characteristics. This could be an invaluable tool for library staff just getting started with baby programs, and even experienced presenters will find many new ideas and thoughtful perspectives.-Steven Engelfried, Multnomah County Library,OR
