    This is a great book ,I am constantly using it

    I teach second grade and we don't get gym class, so I teach them games and activities using this book as my guide. I also train girl scout leaders in games that they can play with their troop and I hold up this book as an additional resource book. When doing vacation bible school, I used this as a resource and a teacher saw it and borrowed the book also. It is a invaluable tool.
