Finding the right book for the right group of kids is one of the main components of a successful storytime. To assist those of us hunting for the perfect read- aloud, we’ve created a Storytime Book Review playlist that will feature quick, two-minute reviews of our favourite storytime books. These videos will include:
- A brief plot summary
- A few glimpses of the illustrations
- Reasons the book is a great storytime pick
- Thematic connections
- Early literacy tips
To help us out, we’ve enlisted the aid of our friend Mackie! Here’s a little about Mackie:
Mackie is excited to be entering her second year of her MLIS program. She has a background in Community Development, and in the future wants to work in a public library with underserved children. Her favourite characters are Nobody Owens (from the Graveyard Book), Olivia (the pig), and Princess Elizabeth (the Paperbag Princess). She spends most of her free time curled up with a good book and one of her two cats.
If you have any books that you’d like to see Mackie review, please leave us a comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
