Rollover to Zoom
Energize your library summer reading program with this new approach that involves all ages, and rekindles the desire for children and families to read together for recreation, pleasure, and their own curiosity. No more counting hours or books, no rewards and awards--just reading and learning fun! Drawing on the methodology of museums and learning centers, Soltan offers practical guidelines for designing an interactive, centers-based program; and presents four complete themed units that include complete directions for sample projects, materials lists, and suggested books. She also shows you how to build interest, secure funding, work with vendors, and use technology; as well as how to train staff, create a coordinated, intergenerational, volunteer and school-based community service effort; and how to evaluate your program. This is a creative, hands-on approach that will get readers involved and keep them involved summer after summer, and all summer long.
