KIRKUS REVIEW

A book that could--should--be issued to teachers in September, along with the lined paper and chalk. Orlick has developed games nobody loses, a delightful variety emphasizing cooperation, acceptance, involvement, and fun. Arranged by age group, they come from other cultures (Aboriginal Infinity Marbles) or improve upon old favorites (Musical Hugs, Cross-Over Dodgeball) or reflect the ingenuity of Orlick and his associates (Progressive Watermelon Pit Spit, Fruit Cocktail Menage--a tasty relay). For five-year-olds: can you swim through Jello--or be one frog--with your partner? For slightly older children: Water Balloon Toss, a cool solution to late June restlessness. Even teenagers will participate when the skill level is challenging enough. Grab this one and pass it on--everybody wins.
