Couldn't be better

Grand-daughter (age 10) loves it so much, I ordered the sequel for her next birthday. Since she lives 2000 miles away from us, in an area where most girls' aspirations do not rise higher than pom-poms and baton-twirling, this book has been a "mind saver".

a parent's/babysitter's best friend!

I gave this book to a 10 year old as a gift, and she absolutely loved it! It's kind of like a survival guide to childhood play (and not necessarily just girl activities). I think this book is best for upper elementary school girls because the directions could be a little complicated, so prepare to help decipher if it's a younger child. I think more pictures could have helped, but the lack of color adds to the overall look of the book, so I understand why this is so. There were games and activities in there I remembered from my own childhood, as well as ones I had never heard before. It's a parent's/babysitter's best friend because there are countless things to do outside and away from the T.V. We played "snail", a version of hopscotch (the book talks about many versions of this classic game) for hours outside with her 8 year old brother. This book provides hours of enjoyment, entertainment and exercise - i'm thinking of getting another one for my own shelves!
