Book Review: Creating Literacy-Based Programs for Children: Lesson Plans and Printable Resources for K-5

Joshua Jordan


R. Lynn Baker returns with another useful guide for youth services librarians. As in her previous book, Counting Down to Kindergarten (ALA, 2015), Baker’s passion for reading readiness and innovative services to K-5 children is abundant throughout this streamlined and practice-based volume. In clear language, Baker advocates for organized and thoughtful approaches to program planning in public libraries.

This foundation guides programmers through the entire process.
