Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This sourcebook is good on presenting general storytime ideas but poor on helping the reader in their execution. Book and audiovisual titles for 100 themes are followed by activity, craft, and fingerplay suggestions, but for detailed instructions the user must locate the further sources cited. There are no illustrations to give assistance. The age range, three through seven, is not subdivided, and users attempting suggested activities with children at the extremes of the range will encounter difficulties. Titles are generally appropriate but not annotated. In comparison, A to Zoo (Bowker, 1986) offers subject access to many more titles. Further, Peggy Sharp's Amelia, Burt and Charlie (Parkside Pr., 1979) ties its activities to the literary qualities of books. There are many good titles and ideas here, but the ``menus without recipes'' approach is likely to leave storytellers unsatisfied.--Patricia Dooley, Univ. of Washington Lib. Sch., Seattle

Children's librarian and elementary school teacher Cullum identifies picture books, videos, fingerplay, crafts, activities, and songs to help teachers, librarians, and others who tell stories to children aged three to seven. They are arranged in 146 topical sections<-->up from 100 in the 1990 edition<-->such as growing up, nontraditional gender roles, lady bugs, school, and witches. She also links the topics to days of the year. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
