Not only is Mother Goose on the Loose (MGOL) a fun-filled approach that nurtures early literacy and school readiness skills in young children, it’s also extremely flexible. Demonstrating how librarians, educators, and caregivers have adapted MGOL for a variety of settings, this book provides the inspiration and groundwork to enable others to do the same. Presented in easily readable modules, among the contexts explored are

  • specific settings such as museums, outdoor venues, Early Head Starts, homes and home daycares, schools, prisons, and laundromats;
  • MGOL for children with special needs, children in hospitals, parents of premature infants, teen moms, and other special audiences;
  • multicultural MGOL, including programs in other languages and programs that focus on cultural heritage and religious traditions;
  • ways to use MGOL with adults, including mentoring educators, involving senior citizens, and training parents as facilitators; and
  • MGOL in libraries, including ways to adapt it for different age groups, parent-education programs, and as themed sessions for summer reading clubs.

Diamant-Cohen also offers social media tips for pop-up programs, suggestions for using digital media, guidance on enlisting volunteers, and more. This resource will enable presenters to offer these fun-filled programs to children and caregivers wherever early literacy is needed—which is everywhere!
