Engage your Latino users with proven, effective bilingual early childhood programming -- even if you're not a Spanish speaker Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen, award-winning creator of the widely-successful Mother Goose on the Looser (MGOL) early literacy program, has done it again Using a combination of translated MGOL songs and traditional Spanish songs from around the world, this lively program helps children develop school readiness skills and presents child development tips to the adults in their lives. Diamant-Cohen, a much in-demand speaker at workshops throughout the United States and Canada, provides a complete, ready-to-use script for MGOL en Espa ol in English and Spanish that is packed with rhymes, songs, large-motor activities, animal adventures, lullabies, and musical instrument exploration which provides all you need to joyfully engage bilingual learners in this exceptional program. Librarians will benefit from the book's wealth of lyrics, rhymes, activities, developmental tips, program aids, set-up instructions, worksheets, and bibliographies in both English and Spanish. Valuable advice for transforming the library into a welcoming environment for non-English speaking users, an explanation of the "80% repetition formula," and practical suggestions for finding Spanish-speaking cultural partners to help plan and present these programs make program construction easy. A companion CD-ROM that includes 65 songs, a complete MGOL script along with reproducible forms and flannel board templates simplifies planning even more.
