Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

This collection of tips on how to immerse oneself in all aspects of children's librarianship is geared mostly to the public librarian. Bird's goal of helping librarians learn about children's titles, old and new, is accomplished through chapters focusing on such things as the history of children's libraries, quality standards for children's literature, collection development, and professional development outside of working hours. The most useful chapter deals with using the collection and covers displays, storytimes, storytelling, booktalking, etc. Each chapter is followed by an annotated list of titles, which are the author's personal selections on a variety of topics. These lists would have been more helpful if they had included bibliographic information. Throughout the text, there are responses from children's librarians to questions posed by the author. Although the narrative is sometimes too simplistic for the practicing librarian, there is some helpful information in this title.--Glantz, Shelley Copyright 2009 Booklist

"School Library Journal" İncelemesi

Bird writes in a chatty tone reminiscent of her popular blog, A Fuse #8 Production, and her love of children's literature shines through on every page. This slim volume is not meant to be an in-depth textbook, but rather a brief overview of the field and an introduction to the stars of children's literature. There are several lists of recommendations, most notably the "100 Children's Books That Belong in Every Library." Shorter lists cover baby books, overlooked novels and picture books, middle-grade titles to booktalk, and great picture-book read-alouds. Highlighted boxes throughout feature questions and answers from seasoned professionals on how they handle various parts of their collections and aspects of their work. Readers who are new to the field may find this a comforting basic guide to managing their collections. For instance, the chapter on how to use your materials touches on displays, reference and readers' advisory, storytimes, storytelling, booktalking, and book parties. A chapter on professional development outside the workplace is also included. Practical advice in a compact form.-Renee McGrath, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
