"I borrowed Early Literacy Storytimes @ your library by Saroj Ghoting and Pamela Martin-Diaz from the State Library collection and it is the best book I've seen of its type in years! I plan to buy a copy and will return yours as soon as mine comes in. It has everything you need for programs for such a wide age range. I am very impressed. The "crafts" are even very simple and process-oriented. I love it!"

"We’re excited about a dynamic new book that helps librarians share their knowledge with adults while they support early literacy skills in storytime. Early Literacy Storytimes @ your library: Partnering with Caregivers for Success ( ALA, 2005), by Saroj Nadkarni Ghoting and Pamela Martin-Diaz, is a best-practices manual that provides a clear overview of the research and lots of practical information on how specific books, rhymes, songs, flannel-board stories, and puppetry support the skills.
