Anderson, D. (2009). Reading is funny! Motivating kids to read with riddles. Chicago, IL: American Library Association.
Because they're quick and fun to read, riddles can "hook" even reluctant readers and keep them coming back for more. Riddles also improve vocabulary, comprehension, and oral reading; enhance deductive and inductive thinking skills; and promote libraries as places for fun.
Drawing on her work with children in schools and public libraries, Dee Anderson offers easy-to-implement ideas on motivating kids to read with riddles plus a folk tale, scripts for puppet skits, sample PR handouts, reproducible games and patterns, and hundreds of carefully selected riddles, some exclusive to this book. Besides riddles on popular topics like animals, holidays, and sports (arranged alphabetically by subject for easy reference), Reading Is Funny! shares two chapters of riddles about books, libraries, and reading. You'll learn how to

encourage children to read more through interactive bulletin boards, puppetry, bookmaking, games, and activity sheets 
incorporate riddles into lesson plans, story times, and book-related celebrations 
use riddles to promote your library's services and teach library skills 
foster an environment of fun by encouraging children to share riddles with each other 
create your own riddles 
This one-of-a-kind resource is for school librarians, children's librarians, teachers, parents, and anyone who wants to show children that reading is funny! (Book Description)
Diamant-Cohen, B. (2006). Mother goose on the loose: A handbook and CD-ROM kits with scripts, rhymes, songs, flannel-board patterns, and activities for promoting early childhood development. New York: Neal-Schuman.
In the award-winning Mother Goose on the Loose (MGOL) library program, inspired by Barbara Cass-Beggss work, Diamant-Cohen uses books, songs, instruments, rhymes, and props to promote early literacy, school-readiness, and other skills in children up to age two. This binder-and-CD kit provides overviews of early development and MGOLs benefits, program instructions and scripts in print and audio formats, evaluation tools, songs, rhymes, tips to share with parents, flannel-board patterns, templates, and promotional resources. Clear instructions for the structured program are given, making this an essential resource for MGOL implementation. The well-produced CD, with clear recitations of rhymes and songs by Diamant-Cohen and musician Rahel, will be particularly appreciated by childrens specialists new to programming for young children, whether they use this model or not. While others looking for content to incorporate into their established lapsits will not find this kit as flexible as Jane Marinos Babies in the Library! (Scarecrow, 2003), or as comprehensive as Linda Ernsts lapsit guides (Neal-Schuman), Diamant-Cohens developmentally appropriate ideas for incorporating musical instruments and music concepts, and promoting social and motor skills, can be useful additions to any program for the preschool-and-under set. -- School Library Journal
