Dear CSLP State Rep:

Greetings from New Hampshire!  This email contains information about a resource that might interest librarians who are putting together material for the 2010 summer reading theme, "Make a Splash--READ." 

Author/illustrator Marty Kelley (Fall is Not Easy) and award-winning children's musician Steve Blunt have teamed up for the CD "LET'S HAVE A READING PARTY!"  It features the song "Make a Splash and Read" created just for summer reading 2010...and includes 15 more songs & stories that make reading rock.  Please consider previewing it via the link below and letting other librarians in your state know about this CD, which SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (October, 2009) calls "...a good album for enhancing storytimes." 

"LET'S HAVE A READING PARTY!" samples and ordering at: www.cdbaby.com/cd/stevemarty 
Distribution also available through: Midwest Tape, The AVCafe, iTunes, and Amazon.

The CD includes read-along versions of books by Marty Kelley: Fall is Not Easy, Winter Woes, Spring Goes Squish, Summer Stinks, & The Rules.  And there are songs for a variety of reading themes: "The Pirates' Reading Song," "Catch the Reading Bug," "Reading Road Trip, USA" and others.  

Best wishes and good luck with your planning for summer reading 2010!
Steve & Marty
