Summary This extensive compilation of fingerplays is grouped alphabetically into nine broad sections; within each one, readers will find themes of interest with suggested fingerplays and motions, books, and musical selections. Appendixes provide addresses where readers can purchase special props and supplies to augment the production. The supplemental DVD introduces beginners to a basic preparation outline for a preschool session; demonstrates several fingerplays in front of a live, wiggly audience; and tours a storytime planner's closet to point out how the author organizes her realia of puppets, flannel-board pieces, and other props.
