Based on the groundbreaking research of VIEWS2-the first systematic study of storytimes done to date-this book recommends simple interactive ways to emphasize early literacy techniques and encourage children to use and practice their pre-reading skills while preserving the delight inherent in storytime. And unlike many other storytime resources, the authors use the findings of VIEWS2 to offer guidance in performing assessment, as well as giving tips for planning and conducting storytimes. Put simply this book assists storytime presenters, children's librarians, and others involved with early literacy by presenting ready-to-use planning tools based on early learning benchmarks with a clear focus on developmental stages; demonstrating how to foster early literacy development by inserting the VIEWS2 early literacy domains into the five practices from the second edition of Every Child Ready to Read(r) @ your Library(r); interweaving testimonials from storytime practitioners throughout the text to provide real-world insight; showing how storytime presenters can connect with parents and caregivers to promote family engagement; providing guidelines, worksheets, and recommendations for storytime assessment, with particular attention to self-reflection and peer-to-peer community learning; highlighting professional development resources that encourage sharing and problem-solving within the larger community of children's and youth librarians; and providing administrators with research-based evidence that supports current and future advocacy for early literacy in public library programming for children. Using this book's systematic approach, readers will be able to plan their storytimes with a clear idea of what to look for in the children they serve, and then continually improve how they meet the needs of their communities

There's a supercharged frontispiece where the villains scowl and cower before
mysterious figures in suits of armour, one of them holding a very unmedieval
pistol. Tresilian's animals have more character than his humans: I love his eagles

What was it exactly? Wonder, rapture delight, surprised recognition, laughter – but also darker feelings that made my heart beat fast and my stomach turn over, and sometimes a frantic urge to close the book before whatever it was sucked me in and destroyed me. But always, I read on. In Storytime, author and literary critic Jane Sullivan takes us from Wonderland to Narnia, Moomintroll to Mr Toad and from Winnie the Pooh to the Magic Pudding, to find out why her favourite childhood books were so vitally important, and how they shaped the woman she is today. This intimate, intense and emotional adventure down memory lane is much, much more than nostalgia. It is a surprising and sometimes disturbing voyage of self-discovery. As Jane relives old joys and faces old fears, she discovers that the books were not what she thought they were, and she was not the child she thought she was.
