About this title:

Synopsis: "Sims' pencil drawings...capture the energy and chaos of the playground. Kids, teachers, and parents...will enjoy having a wide range of games and short clear directions in one volume."--Booklist

From Freeze Tag to Double Dutch, this bright and lively companion to Sidewalk Chalk presents some of the best traditional street and sidewalk activities ever. For every game, you'll find out how many people can play, along with instructions, tactics, and tips. Charming childlike drawings in crayon, plus diagrams, capture the fun and illustrate the rules of play, too. A kid alone can try Seven Up, as long as there's a ball and a wall. Go Shoebox Bowling; enjoy that old favorite, Kick the Can; and check out how limber everyone is with Limbo, a Jamaican dance-game. The good times will keep on going!

From Booklist: K-Gr. 5. From Freeze Tag to Rooster Romp, this compact, uncomplicated title guides children through a wide assortment of playground games. The first three sections group games according to category: tag and running games, jump rope, and ball games. The final section, "Let's Compete," is more random, putting Limbo and Duck, Duck, Goose in the same section. Each game's description is brief, but it provides all the necessary instructions in clear, accessible language. Sims' pencil drawings washed with color are more decorative than instructive, but they capture the energy and chaos of the playground. Veronica Chambers' jump rope book Double Dutch (2002) will make a fine partner to this title, as will other books on specific games. But kids, teachers, and parents looking for playtime inspiration will enjoy having a wide range of games and short, clear directions in one volume. Gillian Engberg
