From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–6—This small book takes a look at the games in simpler times. There are no electronics, batteries, cell phones, or videos involved. They mostly require physical and/or mental action along with the use of an imagination and some sweat, and maybe a little dirt. There are old favorites such as Red Rover and Simon Says as well as Rummy, Hangman, and I Spy. The clear instructions are easy for early readers to follow. There are games for one child, such as Marbles, Jacks, and Solitaire, as well as those for a crowd, such as Freeze Tag, Capture the Flag, and Charades. Line drawings of quaint children dressed in the style of the early 1900s are included. The nostalgic tone will appeal more to adults than to children, but youngsters will love this title once they try a few of the selections. While there are lots of books with collections of games, this one offers excellent short explanations and is easily accessible.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
