From the Publisher
"In this accessible manual, Sierra and Kaminski carefully describe the rules of a variety of games from a vast number of cultures and countries, most of which can be played informally with minimal equipment."
"This collection, the only one of its kind, contains over 200 such games from 137 countries, providing a useful and enjoyable resource for teachers, librarians, recreation directors, and children. . . . Both instructions and diagrams are clear and easy to follow. Indexes provide additional access by type of game (ball games, word games, etc.) and playing environment. Both the introduction and the section on classroom use suggest that teachers are the primary intended audience. Certainly adults looking for multicultural ideas will find a wealth of them here. Anyone planning children's activities will also find ideas that adapt to their programs, while children will find some interesting cultural information for country reports. This unique compilation will be a welcome addition to most collections."
