really liked it
bookshelves: children

Children don't need toys. At least not the ones that come from stores. That's the message of this book.

The best toys and games are the ones that use the imagination. This little group of kids demonstrated this perfectly. This book reads like a memoir of their imaginative play, and it's not hard to believe that adults that had enjoyed this kind of ongoing pretend for so long would remember well, decades later, all of its contours and particulars.
