This book shows children's librarians and teachers how to energise story programmes by infusing them with the power of movement. It offers dozens of interactive, ready-to-use, age-appropriate and story-based activities that get children actively involved in learning. These programmes are designed to expand the child's self-awareness, range of expression, and aesthetic sensibility at particular stages of development, from infancy to puberty; and they are simple enough to be used by any educator, even one with little or no dance experience. Included for each programme are learning goals/skill development, a literature-story connection, and detailed instructions for movement and vocal improvisation and creative dramatics. It is a great resource for daycare and after school programmes.
