School Library Journal Review

This book contains comprehensive plans for six different library parties for children in preschool through fifth grade along with activities and reproducible handouts. Themes include National Library Week, Children's Book Week, new library dedications and anniversaries, Melvil Dewey's birthday, and a celebration of award-winning books. Dingwall offers suggestions for crafts, treasure hunts, songs, booktalks, storytimes, games, and giveaways. She also includes plenty of tips for preparation, room setup, and presentation, as well as annotated reading lists and simple refreshments. This is a good source for quick-and-dirty program planning, and although the scope is limited, many of the ideas can be adapted for other types of programs. Notes on maintaining discipline, publicity ideas, hosting celebrities and authors, and using registration forms are appended. This title makes library-themed parties a breeze.-Cathy Fithian Williams, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
