Arthur's Library Adventure: An Activity Guide for Librarians.
Polshek, Jenny; Hirsch, Peter
This book is a programming resource guide that uses the appeal and popularity of the "Arthur" Public Broadcasting System program characters Arthur, his sister D.W., and their family and friends to encourage children to come to the library, learn about its resources, discover new books and authors, and feel comfortable using all the library has to offer. Using the "Arthur" stories as a springboard, this guide offers a wide range of inexpensive and easy-to-plan library programs for children in preschool through fourth grade, including Arthur-related events, clubs, story times, and contests. Also included in the guide are reproducible materials such as a tip sheet for parents, booklists, a coloring sheet, stationery, an award certificate, and an Arthur mask. (KB)
