Grade 4-6–This kid-friendly compendium promotes sportsmanship and fun. Taggar and Williamson have provided a wealth of information and offer tips on keeping games "fair & fun," choosing teams and who's "it," finding locations to play, and safety guidelines. The easy-to-read descriptions include the number of players, ages, site, strategy, setup, and an explanation of how the game is played. There are activities for one person and small and large groups, physical games, and those that challenge the mind. Variations are noted when applicable and readers are encouraged to personalize the activities. Some explanations include simple black-and-white drawings, and humorous cartoon drawings are found throughout. An index lists games by number of players, types of games, suggested sites, and name(s). A delightful collection of old standbys and fresh ideas.–Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
