Editorial Reviews

"This hefty compendium of things to do provides many choices. The format is just as attractive as in previous books by this trio... Besides chapters on jump rope rhymes, card games, street rhymes, tongue twisters, and riddles, the book contains sections that feature paper crafts, arts and crafts, word games, brainteasers, paper-and-pencil games, magic tricks, and 'string things.' The directions make sense, the line drawings are clear and often funny, and the ideas will intrigue children. This is a treasure trove of things to do." Booklist, 8/97
