From the Back Cover
How many times can you jump rope? This rhyme makes the game of rope jumping even more fun. It's a counting rhyme, and there are lots of others like it. There are also red-hot pepper rhymes for jumping very fast, and rhymes for jumping in and out of the rope. There are even fortune-telling rhymes that answer questions and help you predict the future!
The rhymes in this book began as a way to keep the rhythm while jumping rope, but they also lent poetry and humor to the game. Here are over one hundred traditional rhymes that will make rope jumping challenging and, best of all, fun.

Note: I read several negative reviews regarding the content/words in some of the rhymes. I respect everyone's right to their opinion, and I am going to express my opinion too. In the 70's and 80's when I used the rhymes as a child, I did not truly understand the meaning of the rhymes nor did majority of my playmates. Yes, most of us were more naïve as children [back in the day]especially when compared to the children today [that is a good thing and a bad thing]. Which brings me to my main complaint, why be upset about the content of the rhymes when children are exposed to the constant bombardment of vulgarity and stupidity shown on TV, the sexual innuendo's and violence in cartoons, video games, the internet [social media sites included], cell phones, etc. These complainers must realize their children, whether willfully or not, probably know way more than we did at their age, and maybe even more than I do at 45 years of age. I would like to offer this advise, please focus on teaching your children how to write in cursive [it will benefit them when they see "Sign Here" on a form], teach them how to use a dictionary, and phonebook. Teach them how to interact socially, speaking with proper verbiage, and the attributes of respect, accountability and responsibility. Perhaps even going as far as being an example to them from a moral and ethical stand point. Thank You
my granddaughter quietly slipped it to her mother and said “I don’t think this is for me”. I was disappointed
