Ghoting and Diaz incorporate the latest research in this resource for what they call “early literacy enhanced storytimes” – storytime programs that introduce early literacy concepts in dynamic, practical ways that engage children and parents alike, providing families with tools they can use to develop children’s language every day. The authors focus on the five components of early literacy:

Letter knowledge

Really helpful reference for reinforcing the five components of early literacy (phonological awareness, print conventions/awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary and background knowledge [including ECRR1 narrative skills and print motivation]) and the five practices of ECRR2 (talk, sing, play, read, write) and integrating them more purposefully and effectively into storytimes for parents/caregivers.

This is the best book on library science I've read since my days as a graduate student in the field. I feel like I have a grasp on some theories for early literacy enhanced story times.

I highly recommend this for not only childr

This book is fantastic for new ideas or enhancing your storytime. I am definitely going to try their science storytimes---and I like the pre-reading surveys they would give parents, charts, calendars, so parents have more involvement in understanding how beneficial early literacy is for their children.
