Can't Wait To Use This With The Grandkids Sep 20, 2004
What a great idea, a book on backyard games! I wish we'd had this when our sons were growing up. But with one of them getting married next year, we're collecting material for a day (we hope isn't too far off) when we get to be the doting grandparents. In the meantime, our friends with children still in the nest are raving about it. It makes us a big hit at picnics and with the grown-ups, too.
Great Ideas Sep 21, 2000
THis book is full of wonderful ideas for moms and educators. My daughter and her friends get bored sometimes and this had games in it that I had never played before, along with ones I recognized. The kids can play together for hours without arguing and whining about being bored. As an educator this makes a great book to have especially when you have new teachers or substitute teachers. It gives them great ideas, lets the children develop physical, intellectual, and social skills, and allows the teacher to learn right along with the children. It can even break the ice for the not so assertive teachers or first day jitters. This is a wonderful book and worth the money.
