I first started using EVERYBODY WINS-393 NON-COMPETITIVE GAMES FOR YOUNG CHILDREN when I was teaching pre-school a few years ago. A couple of my college professors had recommended it highly and we had played many of the games in class. I found that using these games in place of the traditional competitive types added a dimension of joyful play to my classroom that benefited all, teachers and assistants included. The games are easy to understand and implement, are arranged by game type (partner games, old favorites, ball games, guessing games,etc,) and grade level, and are indexed by age level and alphabetically. There is a helpful introduction to cooperative (non-competitive) play and its benefits as well as great info for the leader of the games. Many of the games include possible variations. I liked this book and the games so much that a year later, after a chance meeting with the author, I MARRIED him! No, I am not kidding, and no, I am not partial to this book for personal reasons. I fell in love with EVERYBODY WINS;393 NON-COMPETITIVE GAMES FOR YOUNG CHILDREN and its philosophy long before I fell in love with its author. BOTH are wonderful! Happy playing! - K.Sobel

This is a terrific book with a ton of games for kids of all ages. I use it all the time for my kids and for my Sunday school class. Highly recommended.

Young children have More fun being silly than competing. My favorite game was musical chairs. at a cubs meeting I told them they would be playing musical chairs. When the music stopped and we eliminated a chair instead of a student, they were shocked and argued that I didn't understand the rules. However, in a second, when they understood, they happily piled on top of less and less chairs. NEVER were so many kids so elated as they ended the game by fitting onto on folding chair.

Everybody wins should be mandatory for all children's entertainment.
