Read Around the Clock. 1994 New York State Summer Reading Program.
Feldman, Sari; Park, Janet
The 1994 "Read Around the Clock" manual is a resource guide that can lead from planning to evaluating the summer program. The imaginations of librarians across the state have provided creative ideas tied to history, science, music, and literature, with an abundance of programming ideas. Chapters include: (1) "Warm-Up Time"--planning, promotion, and publicity; (2) "Setting the Clock"--decorations and displays; (3) "Keeping Time"; (4) "Day by Day"--programs and activities; (5) "Play Time"--crafts, games, puzzles, mazes, and shopping; and (6) "Timepieces"--books, other resources, media, and program evaluation. Chapter 6 includes annotated bibliographies of picture books, children's fiction, young adult fiction, nonfiction, folktales, plays, poetry, and song, and professional resources (41 pages of annotations). Lists of audiovisual resources are also given. (SLD)
