About this title

From School Library Journal:

Corbett gathered these singing, dancing, hand-clapping, counting-out, ball-bouncing, rope-jumping, guessing, and riddling games in the streets and yards where children play. It's an excellent collection, amply decorated with charming watercolor drawings (reminiscent in style and spirit of Marc Brown's work) of good-natured children of varied ethnic backgrounds. There are simple directions on how to play the games as well as good subject and alphabetical indexes. Since this is a book for children and parents rather than folklorists, there are no collector's notes. The book is similar to its ancestor of 100 years, Kate Greenaway's Book of Games , but is a much fuller collection. Of current titles, the most comparable is Anne Rockwell's Games (Crowell, 1973; o.p.); again, Corbett's book has a far broader selection. Although the children Corbett records play on the streets of England, most of the games will be recognized by American readers. As he notes in his preface, "Where the traditions of play and poetry are woven into one they bind us together as a world tribe." A book for all libraries. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY
