From School Library Journal
Both new and veteran storytellers will appreciate this book. Sixteen chapters are arranged by themes such as "All About Me," "Animals," and "Holidays." Whenever a flannelboard idea is listed, a thumbnail pen-and-ink sketch of the necessary pieces is included next to a Web icon. Readers can then proceed to an ALA Web page to view the actual-sized pattern. An appendix gives further instruction on how to use other props or costumes along with a story. Unfortunately, the index of titles and first lines uses the articles "A," "An," and "The" in the alphabetical sort. The authors provide helpful group-management advice for all age ranges, as well as for incorporating American Sign Language into stories. This book is similar in scope to Elizabeth Low's Big Book of Animals Rhymes, Fingerplays, and Songs (Libraries Unlimited, 2009). However, Low includes some Spanish rhymes and musical notation for 94 songs. Storytime Magic is equally fine for professional collections.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

"Organised into chapters based on 16 themes, it is easy for the reader to find a story and associated activity to bring storytimes to life. Although written for librarians, the chosen themes follow topics common to many units of work in early education, and the stories and activities could easily be adapted by teachers to enhance either an integrated or trans-disciplinary unit of work." - The Australian Library Journal
"There are lots of ideas here on common themes both in the real world and the world of imagination." - Teacher Librarian
