Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Seventy-four children's books are catalogued according to both theme and literacy concepts addressed in each book. The discussion of each book includes an action vocabulary and a list of related activities in an easy-to-use format. The goal is to connect literacy and movement. The fusion of reading and activity is a win-win strategy for successful early childhood development, both in physical skills and educational competencies. This connection between literacy and movement is discussed in Part One. Part Two presents each of the books as learning-to-read and moving-to-learn concepts. Accommodations for children with special needs are detailed. A lesson plan for each book includes lesson objectives, action vocabulary, materials required and additional, related book titles, as well as suggestions for including music. The conclusion of the book presents a series of appendices and indexes that greatly extend the list of resources. This title is a detailed introductory guide to activities for young children that relate movement to books and books to movement and has been reviewed and tested by early childhood educators. It is well organized, easy to use, and would be a good addition to any preschool classroom or childcare center. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
