Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne Pettenati
Spooky stories, puzzles, games and suggestions for good, old-fashioned summer fun await lucky readers of this paperback book. The child friendly illustrations and text mixed with some imagination and leisure time will help summer afternoons pass in a productive and satisfying way. This reviewer's favorite game is the road trip travel adventure, which provides a map of the US and a page to draw your dream car. Readers will also learn to make whirly bird helicopters, a comic strip, and treasure maps, Instructions for building a summer space rocket, sand castle fort, and obstacle course are provided. Boys who like puzzles and word games will find a nice assortment here and an answer key is found at the back of the book. In addition to activities that may be familiar to American children, there are instructions for Hanjie, a Japanese drawing puzzle. More challenging than a typical crossword puzzle, Hanjie offers a way to broaden horizons. A separate section for rainy day games is included. Getting boys away from their computers and electronic games may not be easy, but this book will help them learn how children entertained themselves before the Digital age. At , this book is a bargain, when one considers the hours of activities provided inside. The oversize paperback format makes this book easy to bring on car trips or to a friend's house.
