Story Celebrations Reviews

"[T]his book will certainly help children's librarians in public libraries move beyond basic storytime programming." - Library Media Connection
"Emphasizing the importance of story in our lives--past, present, and future--the chapters begin with a discussion of the subject followed by an annotated bibliography, which in this third volume also includes reading levels of the works. New to this volume as well is a list of Website, followed by a school library program and then a public library program. Each program lists the materials needed, the procedures outlined meeting by meeting, directions, and a background to share with the audience. Handouts are provided for copying to make the learning more hands-on. . . . This work will help librarians serving those aged 10-14 who need a way to become engaged with their reading, rather than simply reading and discussing a book." - ARBA
"In addition to school and community library story hours, these reading lists, puzzles, arts, crafts, writing exercises and more, make Story Celebrations ideal for home-schooling and after-school programs, as well as a traditional classroom curriculum supplement." - Midwest Book Review/Library Bookwatch
