MY NEW BOOK!




Well, it was a long time coming! I pitched the idea for this book about 9 years ago to a variety of publishers and no one bit. A little over a year ago, I sent out the idea again. Charles Harmon of Neal-Schuman Publishers in New York was kind enough to offer me a contract and as of June 30th, 2010, I am a published author! The book appears in Neal-Schuman's latest catalog and I am told it was in Neal-Schuman's booth at the recent American Library Association gathering in Washington, D.C.! I think the book is perfect for librarians, of course, but also for preschool teachers and other early childhood educators!

Here is the description from the Neal-Schuman site:

"Watch the live video demonstrations to envision your new skills in action!

Incorporate creative, educational, and fun fingerplays into your storytime with this time-saving, uniquely extensive one-stop resource. Organized by theme from “apples” to “zoo”, experienced children’s librarian Barbara Scott’s one-thousand, ready-to-go fingerplays and action rhymes provide busy librarians and teachers with the up-to-date, cost-effective material needed to improve storytime without the extra planning time.

Scott explains numerous developmental benefits that children gain from fingerplays, and offers helpful guidance for selecting appropriate material and organizing and marketing storytimes. The book’s one-thousand fingerplays are grouped into over forty categories and span a wide range of themes, including different types of animals, foods, activities, games, colors, shapes, and more. Much more than just another storytime book, Scott brings her decades of successful experience to your screen through an accompanying DVD. Watch her perform all types of fingerplays and action rhymes so you can choose different styles to implement or adapt in your own storytime.

Learn to lead 1,000 fingerplays with confidence while your young listeners absorb listening and memorization skills, motor coordination, and a love of storytime fun."
