Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rhatigan and Newcomb team up again in Run, Jump, Hide, Slide, Splash: The 200 Best Outdoor Games Ever, with a plethora of ways to keep kids active, soaking wet and ultimately gasping for breath all summer long. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-From amusements for one or two participants to those appropriate for a crowd, there is something here for everyone. Arranged in alphabetical order, each clearly laid-out entry lists the number of players necessary, equipment, where to play, and the point of the game. The easy-to-follow instructions also include variations. The action-packed, full-color photographs show children participating in the activities, while occasional line drawings help explain equipment or setup. The introduction offers suggestions for choosing teams and deciding who will be "it," along with a paragraph about sportsmanship. The index provides access according to different categories, such as "Games to get wet." An excellent choice for teachers, librarians, and recreation workers, and for youngsters who are looking for something to do.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
