When it comes to keeping children engaged, take a clue from the Pied Piper: Music does the trick. The 548 recordings listed in Children's Jukebox offer a rich source of largely untapped material to energize children's experiences with storytimes or classroom presentations.This new must-have reference doubles the number of musical recordings from the first edition with selections sorted into 147 subject headings, plus subcategories. It's easy to: find the right song for the right occasion; learn about little-known songs discovered by the author; access web-based resources for more information on the artists and to order popular or hard-to-find recordings; and plan collection development and programming using the in-depth resources of the comprehensive discography.These nearly 550 children's recordings are among the best of the best, including Parent's Choice Award winners, ALA Notable Recordings, Grammy Award winners, and sleeper recordings the author discovered over many years of reviewing for School Library Journal and Booklist. The 45 recommendations for a core children's music collection provides librarians the essentials for a well-balanced collection.All children's librarians, school librarians, preschool, early childhood, elementary and head start educators - even parents - will want to put their hands on Children's Jukebox!
