Summary Margaret Read MacDonald brings new ideas - ideas that are fun! - into programs for children in the library, the classroom, the daycare center or preschool group, and at home. MacDonald provides 101 tested and proved 45-minute sessions grouped into thematic units (Magical Environments, Motor Mania, Dress Up!, and so on). Each program offers a combination of songs, books or poems, activities, films, art or craft fun, and follow-up ideas. And what activities! MacDonald delights with parrot dances, personalized "Grandpa" books, train-window pictures, icy slush piles, music by Ravel, and any number of inventive ways to explore and experience the world. She knows what pleases children while subtly teaching them: the Bookplay way to show the concept of over-fullness is to blow up a balloon until it pops.
