Booklist Review

In her lengthy introduction, MacDonald, a librarian and storyteller, states that in story time ``we need to think books first.'' With this aim in mind she provides 101 complete, 45-minute programs to use with children ages 2 1/2 to 6; each of the thematic sessions lists several books, followed by songs, films, poems, creative dramatics, science experiments, and art and craft experiences. Often there are activities to follow up at home as the author feels strongly that parents or other adults should be a part of story hours. The suggestions are accompanied by brief annotations but actual procedures, for example, making Valentine collages or paper plate hats, are up to the reader. A complete alphabetical bibliography, an index of films, and musical notations are appended.
