Overview

Research on early childhood brain development clearly shows the importance of storytime for toddlers. Toddler programs set the stage for the development of increased attention spans, superior language development, and a love of literature and libraries. The repetition of fingerplays, songs, and stories further enhance a child's cognitive development. Toddler Storytimes II is a source for books, games, fingerplays, puppet ideas, crafts, and other activities that make up a successful storytime. Each of the 25 themed programs presented contains approximately ten carefully chosen books, providing everything a librarian, teacher, or parent would need to plan storytimes. Also included are flannel board stories, poems, and songs with full-size reproducible patterns at the end of each section. A bibliography and discography are provided as well. Easy to use and practical, this book will inspire any reader to put on wonderful, creative programs children will love.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Anyone working with toddlers and preschoolers will appreciate the simple yet entertaining ideas and projects presented in this work.
School Library Journal

With 25 theme-based chapters, this is a handy resource. Each theme includes book recommendations, often 10 or more, with a nice mixture of classic and newer titles, and a suggestion to choose two or three per session. Words and instructions for fingerplays, rhymes, and songs are provided, while a discography provides melody sources for all songs. Each theme includes a flannel-board activity, complete with reproducible patterns and brief directions on how to present the story or song on the board. Safe and simple crafts ideas are presented as optional activities. Activities are listed by type, rather than in an ordered list, so tellers can pick, choose, and order according to individual style and preference. An introduction provides tips and rationale for all of the types of activities. A couple of sentences note the potential impact on brain development and early-literacy skills, but the focus is on the activities themselves; strategies for sharing early-literacy information with parents and caregivers are not addressed. Judy Nichols's Storytimes for Two-Year-Olds (ALA, 2007) and Linda L. Ernst's Baby Rhyming Time (Neal-Schuman, 2008) provide more comprehensive looks at all aspects of storytime planning and presentation. This update of Briggs's Toddler Storytime Programs (Scarecrow, 1993) will be most useful as a resource for programming ideas and fleshing out themes.-Steven Engelfried, Multnomah County Library, OR

    MORDORLAND: THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH! ~Chapter One~

    •MORDORLAND: THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH! By Frodo• ~Chapter One~
    King Aragorn was nothing like he was three years ago. Nothing like the handsome 87 year old Numenorien he was. Why? His children! His annoying, loud, and altogether rude child!!!He tore apart his Royal Garments. He marked graffiti on the age old statues of Isildur and Elendil. Once, he even put a whoopie cushion under his throne! And so, prank after prank, Aragorn got more and more tired. He had bags under his eyes. His hair was knotted and messy. His crown tilted on one side. Aragorn looked and felt like a lousy steward rather than High King of Gondor. So, one day, while he was signing off a peace treaty for the men of Harad in his special office, Arwen was looking over the huge balcony of Minas Tirith. She noticed that, despite the wreckage that was scattered like childs playthings in Mordor, it seemed as if it was under construction. She craned her neck and strained her eyes to see further. Little black things were scurrying near the near demolished Barad Dur. Strange...Could those things be Orcs?! Arwen scurried inside, picking up her skirts as she ran. When she breathlessly arrived in Aragorn's office, she nearly screamed. Which was unusual for her, since she normally talked in an agitatingly whispery voice. "Aragorn!!!!" The King glanced up from his stack of treaties. "Yes, my love?" "I have sighted.....things." "What things?" Aragorn queried. "Little.....dark.....crawling...things. In Mordor," Arwen added, her right eye twitching. Aragorn was worried. "In Mordor," he said, rising up from his seat, "The Lord of the Dark Tower had fallen. Surely, Arwen, this is just a trick of the eyes." Arwen's eyebrows shot up. Her mouth became a straight line, and she said severely,"My Lord, if you do not believe me, I will go there myself and give them a pretty how-do-you-do. Follow me." Aragorn proceeded behind his wife until he was on the edge of Minas Titith's oversized balcony. He stared into the distance and saw.....Orcs. Trolls. Uruk-Hai. Half Breeds. Aragorn looked at Arwen. "We must not tell anyone," Aragorn remarked, "Not even Faramir." Arwen nodded. She looked at the Sun and judged the time. She sighed. "I must go and change little Elendil II's diaper." Aragorn cast his eyes away from Mordor and said, "Go and do so. But I am thinking of bringing Frodo, Sam, and the others over. They may want to investigate also." Arwen cocked an eyebrow. "I thought you would never tell anyone," she said. Aragorn smiled. "Even kings take back their word." Arwen hurried away, as Aragorn commanded a messanger to go to the Shire. The messanger galloped down the fortress of Minas Tirith, with tidings from the King to be sent to the Shire.
