Many games in this book were commonly known games like Marco Polo. Most were for teams, not many for two players. Also, after about #70, it begins listing games for outside the pool.

Great book for kids starting to swim. This book my daughter loved because she also loves water. The pictures are also very bright and colorful.

Another great book for kids starting to swim is below.Mommy and Me Go to Swimming LessonsMommy and Me Go to Swimming Lessons

Reviewed by Tammy Petty Conrad for Reader Views (6/07)

It's summer time and every kid is begging to hang out at the neighborhood pool. As cool as it is, they can sometimes run out of fun things to do before they are ready to return indoors. This is where "101 Cool Pool Games for Children" comes in. You probably remember playing "Marco Polo" from your own childhood. But do you know "Piranha Tag" or "Snatch the Bait?" There is no chance your kids will not have fun and still be safe when you bring this book to the pool along with your snacks and sunscreen.

As a certified fitness instructor, the author, Kim Rodomista, looks at pool time as a healthy way to play and get exercise. She has organized the games in ways to show how many players are involved, what props might be necessary, if there is any physical contact involved and what skill level is required. The appropriate icons are listed with each game. The list is also categorized by whether they are imagination, individual, out-of-the-pool, racing, tag or team games. They are even indexed by group size for your convenience. There are games for every size pool and are appropriate for ages four and older.

I love the idea of the book and can imagine almost as many uses for it as there are games! What if you are planning a pool birthday party and need some activities to keep everyone happy till the cake arrives, or, if you have signed up to be a camp counselor for the summer, or, you are just tired of diving for toys in the pool? Older children will want to thumb through this to pick their own games.

The author has also provided a section with water exercises to keep parents busy once their children are busy with "Underwater Rugby.

I offered to instruct some neighborhood children to swim (having had a great deal of previous experience and certifications). This book offered some excellent ways to support foundational swimming skills. I highly recommend it!
