Storytimes for two-year-olds (book)

Nichols, J. (2007). Storytimes for two-year-olds (3rd Ed.). Chicago: American Library Association.

The introduction briefly covers planning strategies, troubleshooting, and program elements. You will find 50 thematic program ideas. Each theme has a book list, rhymes/songs/fingerplays, craft, sign language notes, and follow-up ideas for parents. The Booklist review warns that the author’s style of running a toddler storytime is very rigid, but praises the thematic ideas and says they are easy to adapt to your own style.
