Booklist Review: "In a time when babies play with smart phones and toddlers know their way around an iPad, this wonderful volume is offered up as an antidote to nature deficit disorder. Rules, variations, and trivia about and brief histories of 40 classic lawn games are showcased here, including badminton, bocce, double Dutch, ghost in the graveyard, and Wiffle ball. Charming, inexpensive, and suitable for all ages, this should find a home in both ready-reference and circulating collections in all types of libraries. Where else can you find definitive information on red light, green light?--Vnuk, Rebecca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
