Gr 3-5-These books offer a variety of games that will keep kids occupied and engaged. Classics like hopscotch, marbles, and I Spy are included, along with card games, picture puzzles, a water-bomb challenge, and races. The games are formatted by degree of difficulty with easier activities at the beginning; almost all of them take up a single page and can be learned by following the three-step directions. Surrounding these explanations are bright illustrations, suggestions for altering the game if there is a solo player or to make it more challenging, and an occasional fact related to the activity. Though this obvious filler makes for some cluttered pages, children shouldn't have too much trouble focusing on the directions due to the inherent simplicity of the games. Materials, when needed, can be easily found around the house but for the most part, "All you need is yourself-your eyes, ears and, mostly your brain." No need to install a DVD player in the car or buy elaborate backyard recreational equipment with books such as these. (c) Copyright 2011.
