In small libraries, it can be hard to find the time (and the bodies) to provide a storytime exclusively for babies or toddlers. With the advent of 4-year-old kindergarten in many communities, storytime is edging younger, but there are often some older preschoolers in the bunch, no matter what. It can be difficult to plan a storytime for such a large age range (0-5)!
At the ALA Conference in June, there was a program about multi-age storytimes, and the presenters recently posted their Power Points and other resources online. The scripts seem a little formal (maybe that is just the nature of scripts), but there are some excellent ideas about books that appeal to all ages, a few different strategies for dealing with the age spread, and other useful tips.
On another note, IFLS librarians, please remember to reply to the email about participation in a project about autism for which I'm writing an LSTA grant. If you have questions or don't remember hearing about this, please contact me!!
