Naidoo, Jaime Campbell & Scherrer, Katie. (2016). Once Upon a Cuento: Bilingual Storytimes in English and Spanish. Chicago, IL: ALA Editions. 978-0-8389-1411-3.
It is imperative that library programs reflect the rich diversity of the entire community. That includes Spanish-speaking children, who need opportunities to hear their home and school languages spoken, and to see their lives validated through engaging cuentos (stories) that reflect their cultural experiences. Additionally, when combined with other forms of targeted outreach, offering bilingual storytimes in English and Spanish is an effective strategy to attract Latino and Spanish-speaking families to your library. This all-in-one resource, written by two experienced specialists who understand the nuances of library services, collections, and outreach to this population, shows you how. Suitable for libraries just getting started as well as those with programs already in place, this guide


  *   discusses the importance of bilingual programming in the lives of Latino and Spanish-speaking children, addressing the unique educational and informational needs of bilingual children;
  *   provides 18 ready-to-use program plans for bilingual storytimes, suitable even for storytime leaders who don't speak Spanish;
  *   includes several templates for designing bilingual storytimes, arranged by specific age groups;
  *   recommends numerous children's books, songs, and professional resources to assist librarians as they plan their bilingual programs;
  *   explores the opportunity for digital media usage in storytimes for Latino and Spanish-speaking families, with examples of apps that can help meet the multiple literacy needs of bilingual children; and
  *   suggests ways to perform outreach to Spanish-speaking and Latino communities, emphasizing the importance of relationship-building and community collaboration.

Campana, Kathleen; Mills, J. Elizabeth, and Ghoting, Saroj Nadkarni. (2016). Supercharged Storytimes: An Early Literacy Planning and Assessment Guide. Chicago, IL: ALA Editions. 978-0-8389-1380-2.

Based on the groundbreaking research of VIEWS2<http://views2.ischool.uw.edu/>-the first systematic study of storytimes done to date-this book recommends simple interactive ways to emphasize early literacy techniques and encourage children to use and practice their pre-reading skills while preserving the delight inherent in storytime. And unlike many other storytime resources, the authors use the findings of VIEWS2 to offer guidance in performing assessment, as well as giving tips for planning and conducting storytimes. Put simply this book assists storytime presenters, children's librarians, and others involved with early literacy by

  *   presenting ready-to-use planning tools based on early learning benchmarks with a clear focus on developmental stages;
  *   demonstrating how to foster early literacy development by inserting the VIEWS2 early literacy domains into the five practices from the second edition of Every Child Ready to Read(r) @ your Library(r);
  *   interweaving testimonials from storytime practitioners throughout the text to provide real-world insight;
  *   showing how storytime presenters can connect with parents and caregivers to promote family engagement;
  *   providing guidelines, worksheets, and recommendations for storytime assessment, with particular attention to self-reflection and peer-to-peer community learning;
  *   highlighting professional development resources that encourage sharing and problem-solving within the larger community of children's and youth librarians; and
  *   providing administrators with research-based evidence that supports current and future advocacy for early literacy in public library programming for children.

Knoll, Debra J. (2016). Engaging Babies in the Library: Putting Theory into Practice. Chicago, IL: ALA Editions. 978-0-8389-1434-2.

Public libraries across the nation continue to transform themselves into learning centers for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. There are many resources available to help librarians create baby-friendly play spaces and enhanced storytimes, but until now there has been gap in the literature addressing the developmental needs and changing behaviors of babies and toddlers.  Parents and caregivers can also present unique service challenges. Focusing squarely on the how of providing quality library service to babies and families, Knoll's new book provides sensible, sensitive advice on meeting their physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs. Geared towards helping public libraries foster healthy growth and development for their littlest patrons, this book:

  *   explores multiple aspects in the developing life of a baby, discussing physical needs, emotional expressions, intellectual pursuits, and social development;
  *   highlights real-life examples from public libraries that relate to how these developmental processes present themselves while babies and families interact in the library;
  *   presents Baby Steps for each topical area, providing service tips and suggestions that can be easily or inexpensively put into practice;
  *   offers Big Steps, conversational points that invite librarians to think creatively about further investment, support, funding, and collaborative efforts; and
  *   includes carefully selected research findings and other information that can be used for planning, policymaking, and advocacy.
