  • Description

While most children love storytimes, they do not always transfer this preference into a love of books and reading. Storytime Action! suggests thousands of sure-fire ways to feature a book itself rather than simply activities related to the book's theme so that children will be involved directly with the story.

Bromann shows how to use a book like Goodnight, Moon by having children repeat "Goodnight, _____" after you read the descriptions of objects in the room or placing drawings or patterns of objects around the library and walking around saying "Goodnight" all together or taking turns.

In addition to specific activities designed for 500 picture books, Bromann provides practical, clear advice for planning programs and developing your own personal style. You can use these ideas to create a whole new storytime or integrate one or two suggested activities into your existing programs.
