Reading and Young Children: A Practical Guide for Childcare Providers. Videotape Companion Guide.
International Reading Association, Newark, DE.
This booklet is the companion guide to a videotape intended for those who work with young children and want to make their childcare facility a place where reading and books are a part of every child's day. The 10-minute videotape demonstrates practical techniques for reading aloud, choral reading, using Big Books, and storytelling, and suggests inexpensive ways to choose and use children's books. The companion guide, following an introduction, is in three main sections: (1) materials for childcare providers and parents available from the International Reading Association (with annotated listings of parent brochures, parent booklets, booklists, books, and other resources); (2) additional sources of information about childcare, books, and reading; and (3) sources of information about quality children's television and radio. A statement about the International Reading Association and its activities concludes the guide. (SR)
