Synopsis: A history of games ranging from marbles to chess and drawn from many countries cited on maps which show where each game comes from and includes projects for making games
From School Library Journal:
Gr 5-8--Part of a series that invites children to "Discover other cultures" and "Make beautiful things," these books are welcome additions. Both titles include a foreword giving a brief historical perspective, a table of contents listing several projects that reflect our global community, a map indicating the country of origin of each activity, and a page that lists organizations and related book titles. Each project is presented on a double-page spread, richly illustrated with full-color photographs and colorful sketches. Step-by-step directions are boldly numbered and clear. A helpful "How to Play" section in Games provides instructions, and Jewelry includes directions for making two accessories--a display board and a bead-threading tray. Both books will be enormously appealing to children who are ready for a more complicated but definitely doable craft experience. Teachers and other adults who work with older children will also welcome these useful titles.
