You'll find indoor games and outdoor games, party games and solo games, sidewalk games, beach games, ball games and water games. There are games that stimulate young minds and those that promote physical development. You'll find skill-building games and games designed to sharpen individual faculties, card games and word games, and an abundance of pencil-and-paper games. And to help you do your part to keep our highways safe (and your sanity intact), there's an entire section devoted to games to be played while on the road.

This an excellent resource that we have used numerous times already for our preschool and daycare. It is packed full of great ideas and especially ideas to do inside when the weather is cold or rainy!!! I would recommend that every had children to keep entertained and would like to teach them something in the process

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.
