What readers are saying about Early Literacy Storytimes @ your library:

Your book is THE resource for librarians that are working toward incorporating early literacy information into children's programs. It is the one tool that does it all--explains early literacy rational, provides research-based information, and suggests hundreds of ways to communicate palatable bits of information to caregivers/parents. I love the book.

We developed a peer coaching method for staff to support one another as storytime presenters. We used the book for our study group sessions with lead coaches. It has been instrumental in helping both experienced and new storytime presenters understand the concept and the importance of incorporating early literacy skills into storytimes. --Dorothy
