Not only is Mother Goose on the Loose (MGOL) a fun-filled approach that nurtures early literacy and school readiness skills in young children, it’s also extremely flexible. Demonstrating how librarians, educators, and caregivers have adapted MGOL for a variety of settings, this book encourages others to do the same. Among the contexts presented are
  • special settings such as museums, parks, malls, Early Head Start, as a summer reading club, homes and home daycares, in schools, and in prisons;
  • children with special needs, children in hospitals, parents of premature infants, teen moms, and other special audiences; and
  • multicultural MGOL, including programs in Spanish, in Spanish and English, and in a Jewish environment and other religious settings.
This resource will enable presenters to offer these fun-filled programs to children and caregivers wherever early literacy is needed—which is everywhere!
