"Why aren't there more events for kids? It's not a lack of great material, insists librarian-humorist Rob Reid, who builds upon his earlier ALA best seller, Something Funny Happened at the Library (2003), to offer 18 new wacky and offbeat programs designed to delight this discerning younger audience." "Each plan opens with a thumbnail overview, then draws on unusual combinations of poetry, picture books, chapter book excerpts, and short stories. The mix varies by theme, but all the programs touch on the concerns, interests, and funny bones (think Captain Underpants) of this age group. Audience involvement includes wordplay, reader's theater, dramatics, writing, music, sports, or crafts. Reid also illustrates how to tweak programs to appeal to younger (preschool) or older (fifth and sixth grade) audiences." "Designed to inspire public children's librarians, school media staff, classroom teachers, and anyone who wants to help literature come alive for kids in grades K-4, Cool Story Programs is a highly entertaining, adaptable resource - and a must-have for libraries serving kids."--BOOK JACKET.
