Music is a fun and imaginative way to liven up any storytime and this guide offers new ideas for incorporating it into children's programming. The nine lesson plans that kick off the book are fully planned sessions that are perfect for librarians needing to put together a last-minute program. A chapter featuring book/song pairings offers new ways to experience favorite picture books while the chapter entitled "More Musical Ideas" shows how to add movement to and encourage participation in a variety of children's songs. This slim volume is nicely organized, making it easy for busy librarians to find suggested materials that will fit their storytime. A great resource for anyone who wants to spice up toddler, preschool, or kindergarten programs. -Danielle M. Margarida, Sharon Public Library, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
