From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-8?Vecchione turns traditional childhood jump-rope games into a vigorous sport. His comprehensive guide provides all the moves necessary to become physically fit and perhaps even a jump-rope competitor. He includes information on the background behind jumping rope, the equipment necessary, warm-up exercises, and progressively more difficult skills and routines. Black-ink line drawings show jumpers of all ages and backgrounds as they indicate foot patterns and arm moves. The physical fitness attributes as well as competitive organizations are also listed. A few rhythm rhymes are included but this is not the focus of the book. For those, see Joanna Cole's Anna Banana (Morrow, 1989). A fresh look at what has been considered a childhood recreation and a book that deserves a place in any sports collection.?Cheryl Cufari, N.A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY

Review:

Adults and children alike will appreciate a jump rope book which illustrates a variety of techniques and includes basic steps for all kinds of jumping; from single workouts to games and routines for more than one jumper. A fun, involving book which invites new interest in this simple sport. -- Midwest Book Review
