Kate I get a little bit ranty about things to do with kids. I don’t have a problem with the concept that storytime supports literacy… what I have a problem with is the way parental fears are played upon and magnified in order to justify a program. They don’t need to do that. There are other ways to talk about the way storytime supports literacy without promoting a doom and gloom, fear-based approach. There are also other ways libraries can support children’s literacy too (which I am finding out through further reading), including not being scary librarians hehe.
