Using children's books in preschool settings: a how-to-do-it manual

Front Cover
Neal-Schuman, 1994 - Education - 181 pages
This manual achieves two important goals. It first surveys the field of literature for children aged 2 1/2 to 5 years, explaining how to find the best books and how to introduce them. It then shows librarians, caregivers, and teachers how to use children's books most effectively. Both a children's literature text and a step-by-step guide to creating a highly literate environment, the book covers topics such as integrating literacy throughout the preschool day, planning storytime or language circles, techniques and resources for reading aloud and storytelling, involving parents, and working with disabled and gifted children.
