Gr 4-6 In this one slim volume, Lewis presents ``101 things for kids to do.'' There is no index, but the titled and numbered activities are listed in a table of contents. The text is brief, chatty, straightforward, and clear, coupled with lots of cartoon-like illustrations to create an open format. Buller's two- color illustrations, a cross between Dr. Seuss and Syd Hoff, further clarify the written instructions and add a touch of silliness to the book. Many activities require no materials at all; others use easily-found household items such as shoes and socks for a clever toss game, paper cups for sleights of hand, tooth picks for an easy two or more player competition, and coins and bills for var ious games and tricks. Some of the ideas are quite fresh; others are from childhood's long past (cat's cradle es cape, the old story of Pete and Repeat); all can be done fairly quickly, easily, and safely by most children. Adults may even get ideas to use with children on rainy or dull days. Maria B. Salva dore, District of Columbia Public Lib .
