Do you have a childhood memory of playing with other children and jumping rope or counting to those age-old funny rhymes?
This impressive compilation includes all the old traditional favorites (and some new) and is useful to anyone who works with children--parents, teachers, librarians, group leaders, camp counselors, day-care people, anyone.
Infants' finger and toe-counting games, choose-up-sides and you-are-it rhymes, ball-bouncing chants, tongue twisters, staircase tales, narrative act-out singsong tales and others--children have been enthralled by these rhymes and rhythms for ages. Also included are author, title, first line, and subject indexes.
