Discover the New World of Reading. Texas Reading Club Program Manual, 1992.
Edmundson, Martha; Ash-Geisler, Viki
This manual for the 1992 Texas Reading Club aims to use books as the major focus of all reading club activities and to provide a holistic view of library programing for the reading club and other summer library activities. Following an initial chapter called "Prepare To Set Sail" containing ideas for launching the club, particular program ideas are given for various age groups in chapters called: "Early Explorers" (toddlers); "The Age of Discovery" (preschoolers); "Globe Trekkers" (elementary grades); "Family Odyssey" (families); and "Apprentice Adventurers" (middle school students). A chapter entitled "Around the World in Seven Continents" concerns an independent reading program and a chapter on additional resources contains a biographic sketch and bibliographic brochure on Steven Kellogg, author, story teller, and children's illustrator. Alphabetic lists of all audiovisual materials and all 596 books mentioned in the manual are included. Additional resources are listed, and there is a collection of clip art for program use by the artist Steven Kellogg. (SLD)
