Book News Annotation:

Bird, a children's librarian with New York Public Library's Children's Center at 42nd Street, gives advice to help librarians build and manage a children's collection that strikes a balance between award winners and classics. She offers tips on arranging the space to best display the books, and reviews basics of storytime, storytelling, and booktalking. Each chapter ends with brief reviews of recommended 'overlooked gems' that belong in every library. There is also a list and brief descriptions of 100 children's books, from baby books to middle grades. The author runs the children's literary blog, "A Fuse #8 Production," on the School Library Journal web site. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
