The concept of short activities which can serve as "fillers" and can make transitions and waiting times more pleasant and productive is an excellent one. Teachers will welcome these 500 great ideas, and will build their own "repertoire" from these suggestions."—Education Coordinator, Project Head Start, Detroit Public Schools

"When you’ve done ‘This Little Piggy’ and ‘Itsy-Bitsy Spider’ as many times as you can stand and the kid still wants more, what do you do? Turn to 500 Five Minute Games . . . this new book by Jackie Silberg will give you enough games to keep going for a long time. And they’re good games. They’re simple and teach such basic skills as listening, counting, science, music, weather and more. The book includes a skills index, so you can quickly find a game that emphasizes the skill you want to teach."—Kansas City Family
