Description
Games make up a huge part of childhood, and memories of specific games stay with us throughout our lives. They form an integral part of growing up and stimulate imagination and creativity. From ancient board games to childhood pastimes of the Middle Ages through to the street games of the 1950s, '60s and beyond, in Games from Childhood Past Caroline Goodfellow delves into the differences in games over time and region.

Bound to awaken distant memories of childhood, her history of this most pleasurable of subjects transports the reader to another time, and is a nostalgic look at how we played.
