10 science fiction authors whose books just kept getting stranger | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

A lot of authors tend to become more conventional over time. They get more mainstream cred, mellow out, and sand the rough edges off their work. But some of science fiction's most famous authors have just kept pushing the limits of storytelling.

A National Effort to Read to Kids 15 Minutes a Day Needs Our Support

A National Effort to Read to Kids 15 Minutes a Day Needs Our Support | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Read Aloud 15 Minutes is a nonprofit organization that's working to make reading aloud every day for at least 15 minutes.

 

The American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) made big news back in June 2014 when they announced that doctors will begin dispensing some new advice to parents of young children. During well-child visits, pediatricians will inform parents and caregivers that reading aloud, along with singing and talking to young children on a daily basis, contributes to brain development and kindergarten readiness.

...librarians are wonderful at idea sharing, and one great resource is Little eLit (www.littleelit.com).  There are photos and blog posts of librarians around the country using technology in story times.  If you see or read something that you think will work for you and your space, you can reach out directly to that librarian to find out more specifics about how she set up her system.  Check out their “Programming” section for write-ups of different technology-infused storytimes, and see their “Gallery” (lower right hand side of page) for photos.
