Rhythm and Books: Feel the Beat! 1996 Florida Library Youth Program.
Rupert, Libby, Comp.; And Others
The Florida Library Youth Program is an extension of the Florida Summer Library Program and has emerged in response to a need to provide programs for school-age children at times other than the traditional summer vacation. The theme, "Rhythm and Books--Feel the Beat!," focuses on music and rhythms that abound around children in the world. The program focuses on information and fun and seeks to downplay the number of books read. Chapters are entitled: "Moving and Grooving,""Rhythm of the Road,""Catch the Wave,""Whoop n' Holler,""Class Act,""Hand Clapping, Toe Tapping,""Island Rhythms,""Earth Beat,""Hummin''n' Strummin'," and "Different Beats for Different Feet." Each chapter features a bibliography along with "variations on a theme," (call and response stories, puppets, etc.), "a capella" (suggested books for reading aloud), "for the instrument case" (display materials), and "interludes" (poetry, recommended recordings, informational material and community resources, crafts, videos, etc.). A combined bibliography of 450 items repeats the titles in each section, providing ISBN (International Standard Book Number) and the availability of alternative formats such as audiocassette or Braille. The bibliography is followed by a similar discography of 54 recordings. Also included in the manual are a program evaluation form, guidelines for using teen volunteers, a puppet show script, a school visit script, sample radio public service announcements, and answer keys to the suggested pencil games.
