Rudiments of the psychology of teaching and leading games take up the introductory chapters of this book- the rest of which is divided into indoor and outdoor games, seasonal and holiday games and games for picnics. Sane remarks on leadership, on play as a constructive character builder, on the appropriateness of different games for different age groups give a basic grounding for the relatively inexperienced adult leader. Unfortunately there is no age grouping (other than the exemplary listing in the introduction) within the chapters themselves. And the games- from a simple tag for five year olds to more complicated charade-like affairs for beginning teens-are not arranged in any special sequence. To its merit, the book is a good collection of a whole lot of standard games and their variations, and individual presentation in a neat method that presents each game under the categories of equipment, formation, object and a description of play will facilitate reference.
