Rob Reid's Comin' Down to Storytime


"We'll be comin' down to storytime when we come. Yee ha!"

If you read to groups of kids in your library or organization, you will want to see Comin' Down to Storytime by Rob Reid. The text is a fun song set to the tune of "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" to get kids excited about, you guessed it, storytime. Reid has written such excellent librarian's helpers as: Storytime Slam: 15 Lesson Plans for Preschool and Primary Story Programs, Shake & Shout: 16 Noisy, Lively Story Programs and more.

The book is cheerfully illustrated with joyful animals by Nadine Bernard Westcott, who has done the pictures for other story songbooks such as Miss Mary Mack, Down By the Bay, and I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, and other titles like Farm Flu and Panda Palace.

I look forward to reading this book to my Family Storytime folks!

"We will check out lots of books when we leave. Bye now!"
