Spring is just around the corner and that means more playtime outside for Cubby and Bubby. If you need inspiration for some family outdoor games, The Art of Roughhousing: Good Old-fashioned Horseplay and Why Every Kid Needs It shares ideas based on what lions and tigers know best – namely, that rough-and-tumble play is healthy! Great for family bonding and even has health benefits for parents, so tell the kiddos to give the video games a rest and get ready for an outdoor rumble. (Make sure you read the chapter on “Getting Started” first for tips on how to keep roughhousing safe and fun for all.) For other books like this, check out the subject heading “Outdoor Recreation for Children” in the library catalog.
