Ready, Set, Go! Storytime Can Help Children (and Parents) Become Kindergarten-ready. – 9/1/2009 – School Library Journal.

A great little post about the importance of storytime. More and more communities lack a sufficient number of quality preschools and daycares to help parents instill in children the skills they will need to succeed in school. It is certainly an area where children’s librarians can help fill in the gaps. It’s also another reason why I strongly believe MLIS programs need to offer more child development courses for children’s librarians. If you’re pursuing librarianship and want to work with children, try taking a child development course. I guarantee you that it will make you stand out once you’re applying for jobs, and it will also make you a better programmer for children.
