Juice up your library programs with these lively, thematic, book-based activities for children in grades 4-8. Ten chapters focus on popular themes and study areas Welcome to Victorian England, Gross Science, Discovering Family Roots, Is This Goodbye? Endangered Animals, and more, offering an annotated list of select books and two complete programs for each theme. You'll find step-by-step instructions, materials lists, and all the reproducible patterns, scripts, and stories you'll need to make it happen. In each chapter, one program is suited to the needs of school libraries and the other is targeted at public libraries, although both can be adapted to either environment. Through reading, creative dramatics, puzzles, writing exercises, arts and crafts, and more, you can engage young learners while building their literacy and reading skills, and their love of books and reading. Designed for school and public libraries, these activities are great for after-school programs and also fit beautifully into classroom studies. Grades 4-8.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[T]his book will certainly help children's librarians in public libraries move beyond basic storytime programming." - Library Media Connection
"Emphasizing the importance of story in our lives--past, present, and future--the chapters begin with a discussion of the subject followed by an annotated bibliography, which in this third volume also includes reading levels of the works. New to this volume as well is a list of Website, followed by a school library program and then a public library program. Each program lists the materials needed, the procedures outlined meeting by meeting, directions, and a background to share with the audience. Handouts are provided for copying to make the learning more hands-on. . . . This work will help librarians serving those aged 10-14 who need a way to become engaged with their reading, rather than simply reading and discussing a book." - ARBA
"In addition to school and community library story hours, these reading lists, puzzles, arts, crafts, writing exercises and more, make Story Celebrations ideal for home-schooling and after-school programs, as well as a traditional classroom curriculum supplement." - Midwest Book Review/Library Bookwatch
