"This book was so full of amazing tips and information that I needed to host a successful School Carnival. I have this on my Kindle and I can take it with me and access the information as I need it. The writer kept it interesting and easy to understand. Well worth the money I would recommend it to any school activities organiser."
"This book is the great step-by-step resource for the person who has never put together a school carnival, but will also probably provide some new ideas for the experienced carnival coordinator as it covers so many topics in such good detail. Specifics regarding what committees to set up, how to recruit volunteers and solicit sponsorships, and how to publicize the event were not only informative but empowering. The descriptions of the many games, activities and contests, along with helpful hints from the author based on his many years of experience, are easy and fun to read and often supported by photos. The appendices which include sample letters and forms along with places to order prizes are worth the price of the book alone."
