    For the first few chapters of this book, I thought it had some good tips but was primarily geared towards parents (I was reading for the librarian perspective). Then I got to the story time chapter and was very happy to find it contained exactly what I was hoping for. I am sure I will be frequently referencing McNeil's recommended book lists in the near future... Overall, this is a practical volume describing many easily actionable practices.

    I'm a library technician and do storytimes regularly. This book has great information if you are just starting out and wondering how exactly to go about performing a fun, educational storytime. Great song suggestions, resource lists and personal anecdotes. I'm a library technician and do storytimes regularly.

    Good material for parents working on language skills with their children. Also has ideas for librarians and teachers. Graphics not as nice as other books, but information is really good.

    Excellent book that covers the basics of early childhood literacy. Lots of information about the development of readers, and concrete examples of things librarians, preschool teachers, and parents can do. I think for experienced children's librarians, this might contain a lot of information they already know, but I'd definitely recommend it to perspective children's librarians, librarians who don't work with children primarily and want to know more, and parents who are curious how to best expose Excellent book that covers the basics of early childhood literacy.

    This is one of the best early literacy books that I've read. There were so many excellent book recommendations and advice given. It was incredibly helpful to read from the perspective of a librarian and parent. This is one of the best early literacy books that I've read.

    some of this was information I already knew, some of it was good to learn. Some of the rhymes and class ideas were new to me. I appreciate the bibliographies set around different themes, etc. The back includes some statistics.

    A superb guide for the Every Child Ready to Read program. Several different ideas for fun programs for young children. I'm glad I found this book; I will be purchasing it ASAP.
