Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Hower
This book contains games to say and play from around the world. The book includes clear instructions on how to play each game, and children from all over the world are represented in the illustrations. There is a song or rhyme to accompany each game, as well as its place in origin. A table of contents and an index of games make it easy to navigate the pages. The author also includes the music for the various songs and tips to help the games run smoothly. There are games aimed at teaching turn-taking and the physical skill of handling a ball. There are also games to practice coordination and games that allow children the opportunity to compete with themselves and others. This would be a great book to utilize when teaching children about various cultures. Furthermore, the organized manner in which this book is presented makes this an invaluable tool for teachers, parents, or caregivers.
