Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Billed as the "official book of games to play", there's something for everyone in these 173 pages. There are games to play with friends or by yourself. There are games for indoors, outdoors and special events. Everything from the ordinary (like Croquet) to the extraordinary (like Rumoli) are included with step by step instructions and black and white illustrations. Great idea for those anticipating a job babysitting.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 6Children, parents, and group leaders will appreciate having this appealing book on hand before summer begins. The more than 150 games and activities are grouped by topic such as indoor games, water games, and games for just one or two players. There is also a section on planning a "Warm Weather Olympics." There are excellent hints for ways to divide into teams or to choose who goes first in an impartial manner. Rules for common games such as horseshoes, croquet, badminton, and bocce ball will be useful whenever the printed directions have been long lost from the set of equipment. Suggestions for some unique team games are included, such as bootin', a form of hockey played in garden boots. Card games and magic tricks are some of the ideas suggested for individuals. Numerous, soft-pencil illustrations of enthusiastic children help to explain the rules and add humor to the presentation.Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
