KIRKUS REVIEW

The counterpart to the Frankels' 101 Best Action Games for Boys, (1952, p. 34) this does practically the same thing for the opposite sex of the six-to-twelve age group. The categories are similar: icebreakers, action games, singing and dramatic games, and easy games: many of the same games are included and there are variations on the old familiars as well as a few new ones. Again a short introduction to adults stresses the value of games as tension relievers and opportunities to act out life situations, but the instructions themselves- livened by John Fischetti's drawings, are meant for girls to read and follow. On the whole the girls' games are less vigorous than the boys', but there's an air of team spirit and fun here in a fine book for parties, Girl Scout meetings and the like.
