Family Literacy Storytimes: Readymade Storytimes Suitable for the Whole Family Reviews
This book, designed to promote early literacy skills in children through public library storytime activities that engage the whole family. The first part of the book gives an overview of implementing these practices and the rationale behind them as well as further resources for librarians. Specific attention is given to working with impoverished families, whose children are most at risk for underdeveloped literacy skills. There are also suggestions for engaging parents for whom English is not a familiar language, who will gain fluency as they help their children learn. The second part gives detailed storytime plans, including related activities, rhymes, and images that can be incorporated into the events. Lots of emphasis is placed on parental interaction, and many activities are designed to be taken and performed at home, continuing the experience for both parent and child. The storytime plans are occasionally a bit dull, but can easily be tailored to the community and library for a more engaging time. Each one includes books suggestions and a list of the prereading and cognitive skills the stories and activities address. This is a worthwhile book, especially for libraries working with many low-income families, and will encourage families to take an active role in their children's literacy development. Recommended for children's librarians who do programming for children under 5.Tags: library programming, storytime, children's literacy, parental involvement, low-income families, cognitive development, pre-reading, storytime plans, storytime activities, baby-5 years old
The concept was great and I liked the fingerplays. The actual sample story time section was disappointing. The organization was also a little confusing as the sample story times were in the back of the book, behind the flannelboards. Personally, I would skip buying this title and just interloan it.
