4.0 out of 5 stars Brings back memories! 7 Mar 1998
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things Have Changed a Bit 14 May 2001
By Nobodymmmmm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars bought for 8 year old 3 Jan 2013
By Joseph James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 30 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
