Appalachian Toys and Games from A to Z

By Linda Hager Pack and Pat Banks

This colorful and educational book teaches children about a simpler time when dolls were made out of corn husks and apples, and games relied more on imagination than electricity.

With the help of Pat Banks’ watercolor illustrations, Linda Hager Pack introduces some of the games that were played and the toys that were popular in nineteenth-century Appalachia. In an age when most children see a television or computer screen as their primary source of entertainment, “Appalachian Toys and Games from A to Z” will inspire young readers to get outside and play a game of Fox and Hounds or Kick the Can. — Review by Dac Collins
