Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A collection of over 100 traditional childhood hand-clapping and street rhymes. Ball-bouncing rhymes, counting-out rhymes, and favorite teases, taunts, and comebacks include "Miss Mary Mack," " I Am a Pretty Little Dutch Girl," and "A, My Name Is Alice." Tiegreen's lighthearted pen-and-ink illustrations are sure to tickle the fancy of young readers. Completing this treasury is a bibliography of sources of more street games and an index of first lines. A book that's sure to produce smiles in any story hour or program. --Pamela K.

Format: Paperback
This books certainly brings back memories of games played on the playground at recess. Although some of the words are different than I learned them, as expected for such widely used rhymes, I recognized quite a few. One disappointment was that there is no indication of the music to go with each rhyme. The authors did not provide an indication of the notes to sing or even that it sounds like a common song. Also, there are some lyrics that are inappropriate for young children and others that are very sexist or condescending. This book is not for everyone and I would certainly not hand it to a young reader without editing it or carefully supervising the language used by the children.

I bought this book because I have so many memories of playing many of these games when I was a little girl, and I wanted to share that experience with my child.
I was a little disappointed because many of the words are quite different from how I learned them. But it is probably unreasonable for me to expect anything different.
If you can get past the fact that these games aren't 100 percent identical to how you played them as a child, you'll find this to be a really helpful guide.

I have two 4 yr old girls with me a lot of the time. Now I can play the games that they are just finding out how to play. It also helps teach music tempo when we smack our hands and thighs. We laugh a lot with these words and actions.

She thinks it is great but it does not give the cadence of the chant or the "clapping" pattern. We do have fun with it.

I did not like the fact that there was no way of knowing how the rhymes were supposed to sound. And I felt that some of the rhymes were not appropriate for children.

Disappointing. I knew very few of the rhymes. It's hard to say them right when you don't kow the rhythm.
