Tag, Toss & Run: ‘What a Cool Little Book!’
With organic lawn care education and advocacy taking up much of our time of late, it’s always a great bonus when our other focus, outdoor lawn games, finds its way to the public consciousness all on its own.
Booklist, an on-line resource that includes more than 130,000 reviews, focused on our book Tag, Toss & Run: 40 Classic Lawn Games this week: http://bookends.booklistonline.com/2012/08/27/tag-toss-run-by-paul-tukey-victoria-rowell/. Middle school librarians and frequent reviewers Cindy Dobrez and Lynn Rutan were effusive in their praise of our book, a call to arms to get children back outside.
“This book might just inspire a whole new set of memories for this generation of kids!” wrote Rutan.
“What a cool little book!” said Dobrez.
The Lawn Games for Life! campaign inspired by the book will be center stage at the upcoming Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine, for the nation’s largest celebration of all things sustainable. The dates are the 20th-22nd of September and it’s well worth the trip, no matter where you live in America.
