Websites and Stories
More great websites for kidsALSC has added 16 more recommended websites to Great Web Sites for Kids, its online resource containing hundreds of links to exceptional websites for children. The site features links to websites of interest to children 14 years of age and younger, organized into diverse subject headings. I like this site, and find it pretty useful when I'm looking for sites that are already vetted by thoughtful people.
For the younger set: Get some great ideas about things to expand storytimes to include storytelling, puppetry, and other ways to extend the story. Wow, some super ideas here (including a fantastic idea for a summer library program promotion). Take a peek at this newish blog: http://btbstorytimes.blogspot.com/.
