Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Updated from the 1997 edition, this attractive and user-friendly volume is a must-buy. Each of the 146 themed programs, designed for children ages two to eight, appears on two facing pages that include appropriate calendar tie-ins, videos, books, music, movements, crafts, activities, and songs. The book offers the resources to plan appealing programs and the indexes needed to locate the suggested materials. Cullum offers many more ideas for clever and entertaining programs than other sources for children's story sessions. She presents clear and simple directions for crafts and activities, quick and uncomplicated for librarians to prepare, and easy for children to follow. The crafts in most other guides require too much time and skill for most librarians who have no volunteer assistance. This sourcebook is an essential purchase for libraries serving this audience.
