This collection of more than 100 games from around the world will keep kids busy having fun all year round. Included are traditional games that can be played indoors and outdoors, alone or with a group, and run the gamut from quiet board games to wild games of chase. The games are grouped according to similarities—games of chase, games of chance, marble games, and board games—and can be played with readily available materials such as dice, chalk, pebbles, balls, coins, sticks, marbles, and playing cards. Examples of games include nine variations of hopscotch and many interesting variations on tag such as the Honeycomb played in El Salvador, Mother Raven's Eggs from Thailand, and Boa Constrictor played in Ghana.

About the Author:

Oriol Ripoll is the author of several books for children published in Spanish. This is his first book published in English.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 6–Good game ideas abound in this handy resource. Starting off with what should be in everyone's game box, Ripoll next offers ways to decide who goes first, or is it. The meat of the book groups activities into sections such as solitaire, chance, ball, and jumping games. Childhood favorites like checkers and hopscotch are included, along with their less-familiar counterparts. Step-by-step instructions are clear. Number of players, country of origin, and materials needed are also included, as are game-board samples. However, suggested ages for each of the pastimes are not given. While a kindergartner would find Jam huay from Thailand enjoyable, Tabula from ancient Rome is for older audiences. Some games like The Jumping Dove from Spain, Jo jo from India and Bangladesh, and Edfáriz from North Africa require up to 20 players and will be especially practical for classrooms. Somewhat fuzzy yet colorful cartoon drawings display children having the best time participating. An index lists games by continent. This title expands on Camilla Gryski's Let's Play (Kids Can, 1998). A friendly, well-researched guide.–Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
