The Diagram Group ( Child's Body: A Parent's Manual , LJ 4/1/78) offers this compilation of more than 800 games from around the world suitable for children and adults. Instructions for each game include information on equipment and number of players, with illustrations where appropriate. The first half of the book is an alphabetical grouping of general games using darts, dice, words, and so forth. The last half, which is devoted to card games, is subdivided into general games, those appropriate for children, gambling card games, and solitaire. In addition to the general index at the end of the book, a very useful section entitled "Finding a Game" indexes games according to type, number of players, and alternative names. The attractive format includes amusing illustrations to supplement the clear instructions. This is sure to receive constant circulation. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
