When you tell the kids to go outside and play, are you met with groans? Make your backyard child-friendly and fun with inspiration from this book. Kashef (Like a Natural Woman: The Black Woman's Guide to Alternative Healing) presents a gallery of backyard designs and projects specifically geared for children's play. The real strength of this book is the developmental guidelines and safety considerations for children. Also nice is the overview of sports activities and their importance for growing children. The projects, from sandboxes to sports courts, are simple but not unique; overall, coverage is quite good. This book updates Sunset's previous Kids' Places To Playby Jeanne Huber. Recommended for all public libraries.
