5.0 out of 5 stars A quick help June 2 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a great book to be able to grab when you need an activity. One thing that I really enjoy about B. Sher's activities is that the are low prep. and you know that anything you find in her book will be of value to the children.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment April 19 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Most activities in this book are only appropriate for very young children. I am a fan of Barbara Sher's other books so I bought this without browsing it first. Many of the '300' activities are chants with various words. For example: "we've all got a name, first and last, tell us your name and we will laugh". Another activity is to let the child smell food flavorings. Fun stuff if you're 3 but there isn't much for an 8 year old.

Wonderful book for parents, teachers, baby-sitters, etc. Gave the Hebrew edition (available in Israel) to a friend who enjoyed using it to entertain the children on a trans-atlantic flight. I highly reccomend this book and others by Barbara Sher, including "Extrodinary Games with Ordinary Things"

Being a teacher myself, I need to handle plenty of teens everyday. This book allows me to build a bond with them and also see them grow and learn with each activity. Very useful book to use.
1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money Oct. 3 2012
By School Counselor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was so disappointed in this book. I was hoping to have some great games to choose from to use in my classroom guidance lessons and with groups. Out of 300 "games" not one is something I can actually use for this purpose. They aren't games...one is to draw a letter on someone's back and see if they can guess what it is. Even if I could only use 10%, it would have been worth the purchase, but I don't think I'll be using any.
