The reviews are in!!


I just received an email from Neil-Schuman announcing that the book, Early Literacy Programming en Español: Mother Goose on the Loose Programs for Bilingual Learners has just been reviewed. Below are what the reviews have said. Pretty good!

“In this thoughtful and highly useful resource, Diamant-Cohen takes elements of her energetic Mother Goose on the Loose literacy programs and incorporates them with early childhood literacy strategies used with Spanish-speaking, bilingual children and their families…this is a worthy source of ideas for any librarian serving Spanish-speaking populations.”
— REFORMA, Spring/Summer 2010

“The most helpful information covers how to work within the Latino community; how to plan and present with a Spanish-speaking partner; and how to customize the book’s programs to suit the individual library…Non-Spanish-speaking librarians, as well as those who speak Spanish, will benefit from this book.”
— Booklist, July 2010

“The volume is infused with enthusiasm to serve the children of Spanish-speakers. It will not only help English-speaking librarians, but also the bilingual ones to present and enjoy MGOL.”
— School Library Journal, May 2010
