Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 3: Guessing games Charades Charades is a fun game to play when people come to visit. Players take turns being the actor. Each player writes down a word, name, or phrase on a piece of paper and puts it in a hat. The first actor takes a piece of paper from the hat. He or she must act out the mystery word or phrase within one or two minutes. Sometimes the actor gives clues such as pulling on an ear, a gesture that means "sounds like," and then acts out a word that rhymes with the word on the paper. The player who guesses the word or phrase is the next actor.

Review:

Games form long ago belongs in every library as a resource for student projects and will certainly be a welcome addition to a child's personal collection -- Canadian Children's Literature, 1995

This is another excellent book from the series Historic Communities, which gives a fine, easy-to-read overview of children's games from 19th century North America. Entertaining, with colored illustrations on every page, this book would be an enjoyable resource for any elementary or junior high student studying the history of everyday life in North America -- L. Estabrooks, Gordon Bell High School, Jan. 1996
