Storytimes are not only useful for entertaining children and stimulating their imaginations—they are a way of helping build vocabulary and listening skills, as well as instilling a love of books, reading, and libraries. But what are the best storytelling techniques for achieving these goals? Now there is a guide for making storytimes more active and stimulating: Storytime Action! 2,000+ Ideas for Making 500 Picture Books Interactive.

Author Jennifer Bromann—already known for transforming the traditional booktalk for the MTV generation—covers thousands of resourceful ways to involve children, from directly challenging them with questions to leading games and improvisations. She has chosen 500 books commonly held by public and school libraries with a variety of publication dates and themes in order to prove that any book can be the centerpiece of a dynamic storytime experience. In addition to providing the activities designed for each book, Storytime Action! outlines the practicalities of program planning and specific tips for developing a personal storytelling style.

Whether used to create a whole new storytime or to integrate activities into existing programs, Storytime Action! will help the storyteller make the experience better for children.

While most children love storytimes, they do not always translate this preference into a love of books and reading. Storytime Action! suggests thousands of sure-fire ways to feature a book itself rather than just activities related to the book's theme so that students will be involved directly with the story.

In addition to activities specifically for 500 picture books, Bromann provides practical, clear advice for planning programs and developing your own personal style. You can use these ideas to create a whole new storytime or integrate one or two suggested activities into your existing programs.… (more)
