Foundations of Education
Rob Reid had two books published simultaneously by ALA Editions in June 2007. The first book, "Children’s Jukebox," second edition, is a subject index of children’s recorded music designed as a library resource book. The second book, "Something Musical Happened at the Library," is aimed at classroom teachers, music teachers and librarians, and features lesson plans and bibliographies that incorporate music and dance into literature-based programs. Reid promoted those books and a previous book "Storytime Slam" as one of three upstart authors at the second annual LibrarySparks Road Show. The trio conducted three workshops in Dallas and Houston, Texas, and in Somerset, N.J. Reid’s corresponding article titled “We’ll Sing a Song Together: Incorporating Music into Story Programs” has been published in the September 2007 issue of Book Links magazine. Go to top of page
