"A book that should not be overlooked",

This review is from: Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings (Paperback) by Readers Favorite, (Hawesville, KY USA), dated January 30, 2011

Tim Ferguson has complied his knowledge, ideas and games into a treasure and must-have for all youth leaders, titled: "Not the Same Old, Done-It-before Youth Meetings." It can be difficult trying to plan a youth meeting that will be engaging, fun and also teach a point. This book is a useful resource to solve that problem! There are different lessons focusing on holidays, themes that are pertinent to teens, and games to help get the point across to youth and role plays.

The book is well-organized and has a table of contents as well as an index that helps the reader find what he is looking for quickly. There is also a section that discusses child abuse/mandating reporting. This is important as I know many states mandate that youth workers report abuse and it is important to be informed as to this process if the need should ever arise.

The location of meeting is also discussed along with other practical tips for the workers. It is truly a book that should not be overlooked if you are working with youth!
