Our 2018 theme is “Libraries Rock!” Below, you’ll find subthemes for each manual, to help give you an idea of what we’ll be covering in each one. Please submit your ideas by June 30, 2016 to Amanda Struckmeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org; be sure to include your name, institution, city, and state, so that we can acknowledge you in the manual. Please note whether any fingerplays, rhymes, or songs are original works. Any format is welcome (book lists, bulleted lists, brief notes, or full paragraphs, for example). If you prefer, a CSLP Program Submission Form can be found at http://www.cslpreads.org.
