Format: Paperback
Packed with 600 pages of games, riddles, mazes, activities, and physical challenges, the Giant Book of Puzzles & Games is a great reference tool for not only families, but anyone who works with children. This book solves the dilema of how to keep children occupied, regardless of their age or gender. Perfect for rainy days, long car trips, vacations, camping trips, birthday parties, sleep-overs, scout meetings, family nights, or quiet time alone, the activities will challenge parents and children alike. Educators should also take note, since teachers, as well as "before and after school" project coordinators will find this book a relative gold mine of ideas to supplement classroom curriculums and activity schedules.
With titles that range from "Quiet Time" to "Test Yourself" and "Special Party Games", the 11 chapters allow for quick and easy reference. Subcategories within each chapter further help readers locate special areas of interest.
Interestingly, I found myself flipping through the book to read the jokes and riddles, as well as work the challenges, whenever I had a few minutes of time. Frequently, a "few minutes" turned into a few hours. Information on the book's back cover states that "There are enough puzzles to keep you entertained for years." This the truth, and like all good books, you won't put it down.
