Story Time Effective Practice (STEP), developed by the authors, is an approach that articulates the link between child development theory and storytimes. This important resource shows how presenters can use STEP to craft a storytime that is effective for mixed-age groups and adheres to best practices for emotional, social, physical, and cognitive support. In this book, early literacy experts Ghoting and Klatt offer more than 30 complete ready-to-use storytimes appropriate for newborns to children age 5, along with extension activities. They include preparation, planning, and performance tips, plus guidance for interacting with parents and caregivers.
