Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
A wonderful resource for storytime programs suitable for the whole family. Some themes are standard, while others are zany, such as "Mouthsounds" (about making sound effects) and "Altered Endings & Twisted Tales." For each of the 24 themes, Reid includes a combination of suggested books, crafts, felt or string stories, fingerplays, movement activities, poems, reader's theater scripts, riddles, songs, and videos. Each program outline is followed by lively annotations and performance suggestions. A final "Mix and Match" section includes alternatives for adapting programs to suit personal style. Reid even makes efforts to engage teenagers and older family members-mainly by enlisting them as performers. The discography and bibliography will help locate resources. A treasure for both public and school librarians.-Robin L. Gibson, Muskingum County Library System, Zanesville, OH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
