The book offers lots of ways to play versions of popular games with a make-your-own version. Naturally, it doesn't tell you explicitly, "Don't buy game X, you can make your own!", but it does give great instructions on how to make paper playing boards for games like Shut the Box, Beetle (like a drawing version of Cootie), and also how to get the most out of a game like Checkers.
As far as outside games, it can't be beat, there are dozens of variations on classics like hopscotch, hide-and-seek, and that eternal favorite: tag!
This book is a great gift idea for Moms, Teachers, Daycare Providers, and it's a great one to leave around for the teenaged babysitter if you're going out and you don't want the kids to spend the evening in front of the TV. Wonderful!
This is a book kids below chapter book reading level will probably not use by themselves--it's really aimed more at adults or older children who are game leaders.
I used this one for years in after school care and a summer program; because it's so encyclopedic we were able to settle disputes about the rules of traditional games (capture the flag, etc.) using this book.
This book, along with "the ultimate indoor games book," kept the kids (ages six to ten) busy all summer long!
