1,000 Fingerplays & Action Rhymes (2010) Author: Barbara A. Scott
If you’ve ever wondered how to bring storytime to life with your hands, or how to keep a group of young children focused, this sourcebook will keep you and your audience together in song and motion. Nine chapters organized by themes such as “Bubbles to Circus,” “Pizza to Scarecrows,” and “Shapes to Teeth” provide plenty of active stories for tapping, clapping, and turning around. The index has sources to help you find craft activities and new puppet friends, and the companion DVD has demonstrations and performance tips.
Early Literacy Programming en Espanol: Mother Goose on the Loose Programs for Bilingual Learners (2010) Author: Betsy Diamant-Cohen
Combine early literacy skills with the gift of two tongues for powerful and adventurous programming. As in her 2006 Mother Goose on the Loose title (also available for loan), Diamant-Cohen brings together songs and stories with plenty of props (flannelboard templates to puppets). For the bilingual challenge, basic Spanish phrases for your staff, and a plan for creating partnerships for population outreach boost the success of this program and its benefits.
