2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dave Brunner on March 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
One of the most comprehensive and complete books on fun events and activities for youth, adult and children. Great for inside or out, winter or summer, this book has ideas you'll be thrilled to share with others in your church, school, or other organization. This book was shared with me and the first day I looked into it I knew I had to have my own copy for constant reference, you'll not be disappointed.
