For someone who has never led a story time before and is a first time public library employee, this book offers an excellent introduction and guide to all things story time. It is very detailed and yet not overwhelming due to the way the material is presented. The author offers many lists and guides that are easy to process and remember.

One word: transitions. I literally cribbed her dialogue highlighting transitions and adapted it for my own storytimes. Everything else was pretty standard for your average Storytime 101 manual. Katie Fitzgerald also introduced me to something I didn't realize was a Hot Trend in children's services in using a ukulele in storytimes. YMMV.
