Many of the doodads can be created as family do-it-yourself projects, and some can be adapted to work with non-readers of any age. Instruments can also be a great way to get children's attention and teach literacy skills, whether it's a drum to beat while reading a story or a maraca for children to shake during a song, and lesson plans for musical storytimes address how to use rhythm, singing, and dancing to make early literacy fun.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eTeaches librarians how to use storytimes to build literacy skills in pre-readers of all ages\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOutlines all of the steps necessary to carry out pre-literacy storytimes, displays, and outreach activities with photos, examples, and instructions for librarians and families\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers ideas for using inexpensive \"doodads,\" especially those including letters of the alphabet, to build literacy skills\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eDetails how the musical and nonmusical can add musical elements to storytime to improve literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eProvides tips for engaging caretakers in storytime so that children may continue learning at home\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}
