The Goose is Loose Again!

Named an “outstanding resource” in a starred review by Library Journal, Mother Goose on the Loose (MGOL) incorporates books, rhymes, fingerplays, flannelboards, music, dance, and child-parent interaction into dynamic programs that bring whole families into the library. Her research-based approach to helping young children learn has made Diamant-Cohen’s book a bestseller, and now she’s revised and updated it to include additional research, information, and tips. Filled with ready-to-use plans and activities that build motor, music, social, emotional, and pre-literacy skills in infants and toddlers, this resource includes:

  • planning sheets for implementing the program;
  • guidance on designing new MGOL sessions, plus five MGOL programs with complete scripts and instructions, easily adaptable as needed;
  • ways to adapt MGOL for different cultures and languages and to address social justice concerns;
  • suggestions for incorporating digital media such as tablets;
  • tips for communicating with parents, library administrators, and stakeholders;
  • research findings on the learning process for infants and toddlers, including the importance of repetition, ritual, play, reading, movement, and music; and
  • links to additional online resources such as music, sample participant surveys, and promotional tools.
    • Librarians, educators, and caregivers across the country have already found MGOL easy to learn and easy to present, and so will you!
