The Tween Scene: A Year of Programs for 10- to 14-Years Olds is a treasure chest of programs, tips, and ideas for serving the tweens coming to your library. No longer children, while not yet teens, tweens need to have programs geared to their interests and age level. The authors tell you how to get started, how to publicize to tweens, and provide ice breakers to get tweens talking. Then there are four programs for each month of the year. Each program description offers advertisement ideas, a guide for preparation, forms, room set-up suggestions, a complete outline for the program presentation, a list of materials used, a budget, and personal comments and suggestions from the authors’ experiences. If you are thinking about initiating programming for tweens, or need fresh ideas for your group, this is the book you need. Includes many color illustrations and reproducibles.
