Good for groups, less so for individuals
on 8 February 2005
Some good ideas, broken down into categories, and well described. However the book seemed to focus more on "group" activities, and some had quite an American flavour to these. (Anyone who's seen Barney the dinosaur on television will get some idea).
I'd debate the word "games" in the title, as although some were games, there was far more focus on tasks and activities, and a bit too much chanting (the author obviously likes chanting) for my liking.
Probably better for nurserygroups and schools rather than parents with one or two children, although some of the ideas were still applicable to one-on-one scenarios.
Best to try and have a browse of it in a bookshop first if you can to see if the style and activities suit your situation.
