fun and simple! Jan. 24 2008
By K.Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Our children spend so much time entertaining themselves these days, that it can be difficult to get them to interact in a positive way with others. Even many classrooms have a difficult time creating opportunities for positive interaction. Electronic games and computers have taken their toll.

This book has 101 fun ways to play and have fun, while relaxing and shedding the tensions that even our little ones find building during the day. There are sit down games, and active games. One suggestion is even for a tea party with Chamomile tea!

Scouting expeditions, massage circles, campfire games (around a candle) and mental gymnastics are all included. I work in a school for special needs children and there are many games that our students will be able to play and enjoy. Of course this is not a book meant to be handed off to a child with instructions to "go and play." This is a book to give adults new ideas of how to interact with children and find new ways to enjoy some down time.

One of my favorite parts of this book are the little bits of wisdom tucked here and there among the games, Such as "Imagination is more important tan knowledge" Albert Einstein .

This is one of those books that moms, caregivers and teachers will find to be an invaluable resource for those times when everyone needs a break.

Transition time games for PreK-2, primarily Jan. 15 2008
By Kaeli Vandertulip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This small book is an excellent resource for teachers and daycare workers (preK through about 2nd grade). While some of the activities are meant to be done alone, few are really good to use at home if you just have one child.

The activities in this book are excellent for transition times in a classroom of just about an size. All the games are original-some are based on games I'd seen before, but these games add something new. However, despite the title, many of these games will NOT help children relax. They are energy-building games. Despite that, the games are fun and even using a dozen of them through the school year can be fun for students and helpful for teachers. Excellent resource for teachers and to add to a school library collection. I do question the publisher's decision to classify this as Juvenile Nonfiction, though-it's not written for the kids.

Great games for kids Jan. 15 2008
By MrsDean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
101 Relaxation Games for Children, by Allison Bartl is an easy to read book geared towards those who teach or otherwise interact with young children.

The book delivered more than I was expecting from a book of this type. The first great surprise was the excellent set up of the list of games table. This table lists all of the games by name and shows what size group each particular game is best suited for. Another great tool are the icons used throughout the book, these break down the games into even more detail so you can tell which would be best suited for your needs. For example, the Sunshine Icon indicates that the game involves going outdoors, so if you are in the middle of a New England winter and the outside temp is 2 degrees, you would know to skip the game with this icon.

The second pleasure of this book is the wonderful and imaginative games within. I found all of them to be easy to understand and fun for everyone involved. My personal favorites include Eagle Eyes (page 40) where the group must stand still and use their eyes to find an object hidden in plain view (the purpose being to calm rowdy children) and Mental Journeys (page 87) where the leader of the group describes a place everyone is familiar with and the others in the group quess where they are talking about, a great way to enhance a child's descriptive powers and listening skills.

There are even a few games here the I feel could be beneficial to myself, such as Angry Spaghetti (page 15), where you use imagery to pull negative thoughts out of your head. I know I could use some help getting rid of bad thoughts at the end of the day!

Overall, I would highly recommend this book to any care giver, teacher, and parent. I plan to show this to my son's second grade teacher, I know she will find many uses for this book when dealing with energetic 7 year olds!

Daycare must Feb. 14 2008
By R. Stutz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
101 Relation Games For Children by Allison Bartl

I love this book. I am a home daycare mom and this book has lots of fun ideas to use with the kids. African Back Drums (pg 36) is a favorite for the kids to do with a friend but it feels great and relives the day's tension when the kids use my back as the drum! There are 100 different ideas to do with the kids and they are lots of fun. I like how easy it is to use the book. It is a Smart Fun book and the third one I have read. These books are so easy to look up a game or activity and at a glance you can look at the icons at the top of the page to see if it is a group activity, pairs, outside, needs props or a large area. When I have 6 active kids under the age of 6 looking to me for the next activity I need all the quick help I can get an idea, know we have all that is needed, and get it going as quick as possible. But to also have it 101 relaxation games? It is wonderful....like it says on the front of the book, "Finding a little peace and quite in between." This book will be dog eared and used a lot in my daycare.
Great book for Groups Dec 24 2013

As a counselor for elementary children, I use this book as a fun way to teach relaxation skills. These games would work well for classroom teachers as well.
