Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-6-The 60 activities promised in the title hark back to a slower, quieter time. Making up riddles, face painting, creating bubbles (including directions for the formula and wands), balloon tosses, bug hunts, making s'mores and pretzels, learning sign language and Morse code, backyard camping, three-legged races, knot tying, whistling, and (heavens!) reading a book are just some of the ideas presented. There's nothing new here-just a gentle reminder of life before Nintendo and Rollerblades. It's more of an idea book for those dog days of summer, though some of the directions are a bit sketchy. The black-and-white cartoons that appear on each page add to the fun. Bring on the lemonade!-Jennifer J. Gallant, Cleveland Public Library, OH

I bought this book so I could get ideas for "Kid Camp" which was one day a week with my grandchildren. I got nice ideas from the book and it is easy to read and nicely illustrated as well.

We borrowed this book from the library several times before I decided to purchase it. Lots of great ideas, some you can freely find on the internet but with this book it's all in one place. Some of the activities are applicable for mostly anytime of the year. Good book to have for anyone with children around to entertain.

This book is filled with really great ideas. There are really fast and inexpensive ideas where you don't have to spend a lot of money to entertain them in the summer

Not the usual book from this group. Really not going to use it at all for grandkids or children I care for.
