The sections of the manual and their principal contents are as follows: (1) general information, including an overview and forms for registering students, recording attendance and volunteer participation, and volunteer application forms; (2) publicity, including sample news releases, a letter to parents, and displays; (3) programs and activities, including directions for making props for stories and activities; (4) craft ideas, including directions and, in some cases, templates; (5) word games and mazes based on the explorer theme; (6) solutions to puzzles and games; and (7) resources for materials and a bibliography of books on story-telling, art activities for youngsters, and other topics.
