About the Author:

JUDY FREEMAN (www.JudyReadsBooks.com) is a well-known consultant, writer, and speaker on children's literature and storytelling, and a visiting lecturer at the School of Information, and Library Science at Pratt Institute, New York City. A former school librarian, she gives conferences, workshops, speeches, and performances throughout the U.S. and the world for teachers, librarians, parents, and children, and is a national seminar presenter for BER (Bureau of Education and Research). Freeman served as a member of the Newbery Committee to select the Newbery Award book for the year 2000 and was on the Sibert Committee for 2008. Freeman's Library Unlimited books include Once Upon a Time: Using Storytelling, Creative Drama, and Reader's Theater with Children in Grades PreK-6, the Books Kids Will Sit Still For series, and the yearly The Winners Handbook, reviewing her top 100 children's books of the past year. Judy's latest and most exciting project is writing children's book reviews and other content for author James Patterson's new website for parents, librarians, and teachers, www.READKIDDOREAD.com.

Review:

"Librarians who are looking for information to improve their library programs need look no further than Judy Freeman's book....In a straightforward, concise manner Freeman provides an excellent introduction to using all of these techniques. She tells media specialists how to prepare, practice, and perform a successful storytelling event....Her extensive diverse bibliographies provide additional guidance....Take the plunge and try something different at your library; using this book will guarantee librarians are prepared and supported in their efforts. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"We all agree on the importance of story in the lives of children, but many of us stop at reading aloud. Don't. Freeman's advice and ready-to-use scripts, tales, chants, songs, accompanied by notes and tips, offer enough support, inspiration, and encouragement to get the most timid among us on our feet, sharing stories." - Curriculum Connections

"What began as a handbook to accompany a series of storytelling workshops has become a compilation of tried-and-true stories, ideas, and activities for librarians working with children....Even librarians who have Freeman's earlier books will want this one. While new librarians will find the confidence to begin telling stories, those who are more experienced will be able to polish their skills, expand their repertoires, and incorporate reader's theater and creative drama into their programs." - School Library Journal

"Judy Freeman has more ideas for using children's literature than almost anyone we know. In this volume, she packs songs, readers theater, great-book lists, best professional books, good web sites, and more to attract librarian and teacher to make reading fun, exciting, creative, and beneficial to the literacy program of the school....Bottom line: Highly recommended for teachers and teacher-librarians who are on a quest to move beyond just deadly skills." - Teacher Librarian

"The ideas presented are very useful and based on materials written, presented, and taught by Judy Freeman. An author/title index enables the user to quickly find a section on the author or title they wish to present on, while the work itself enables easy browsing if one is unsure of what to present next." - ARBA
