Children's Caravan: A Reading Activities Idea Book for Use with Children. A Fun with Reading Book.
Kimball, Judith A.
Intended for elementary school teachers and librarians, this book was designed to help in the development of reading programs for young children. Five sections are included: (1) planning ahead, which includes getting organized, making decorations, collecting "junque" (craft materials and other items needed for craft activities); (2) conducting reading programs for children of all ages, which covers storytelling, readabook programs, picture book programs, book talks, book reviews, book discussions, and references; (3) developing a reading activities theme program, which suggests activity ideas and contains references; (4) using theatrics to bring books to life, which focuses on pantomimes, skits, plays, and puppets, and includes references; and (5) staging special events, which suggests different kinds of festivals and "happenings" to hold, such as a sports extravaganza or a winter carnival. Each section contains an introduction and a bibliography. (EL)
