Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

When you're a kid, summertime stretches before you like a vast plane of possibility. Long days await, ready to be filled with excitement and discovery--and games, of course! Whether you feel like playing croquet, Frisbee golf, hide-and-seek, or staging a treasure hunt--or maybe just a quick game of crazy eights--this book has all the rules for over 150 games and activities, many summers' worth of entertainment. The collection is divided into sections such as "Land Action" (croquet, badminton, capture the flag); "Just for One or Two" (juggling, card tricks, double solitaire, marbles); "Indoor Games" (charades, dominoes, hearts); "Games to Make" (comet ball, pickup sticks, homestyle bingo); "Waterfront" (water safety's no game, beach games); and "Warm Weather Olympics" (Olympic planning, beach biathlon, land challenges). Jane Drake and Ann Love are sisters who have spent many summers together with their families, playing lively, silly, and just-plain-fun games. They are both avid naturalists and are the authors of the bestselling The Kids' Summer Handbook and The Kids Campfire Book. This excellent game guide--clearly and attractively designed, straightforward, and packed with potential--belongs on the shelf of any kid or parent looking for year-round fun. (Ages 8 to 98). --Karin Snelson

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 6AChildren, parents, and group leaders will appreciate having this appealing book on hand before summer begins. The more than 150 games and activities are grouped by topic such as indoor games, water games, and games for just one or two players. There is also a section on planning a "Warm Weather Olympics." There are excellent hints for ways to divide into teams or to choose who goes first in an impartial manner. Rules for common games such as horseshoes, croquet, badminton, and bocce ball will be useful whenever the printed directions have been long lost from the set of equipment. Suggestions for some unique team games are included, such as bootin', a form of hockey played in garden boots. Card games and magic tricks are some of the ideas suggested for individuals. Numerous, soft-pencil illustrations of enthusiastic children help to explain the rules and add humor to the presentation.ABlair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA

Format: Paperback
This book has lots of ideas in it and it written clearly and concisely... However I know many of the ideas that are in the book so it was only an average help to me... If you were giving it to a child as a present it would be great :)

I babysit and this book will come in handy for games to play with only a few kids or when the whole neighborhood comes over.

We were looking for a book with games and new ideas for a recent youth campout and found exactly what we were looking for in this helpful book. It was a short camp so we have lots of great ideas and help for planning the next event and not necessarily just for camp.
