Summary

Summary

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 join the fun, plus instructions, tactics, and tips. Charming childlike drawings in crayon, plus diagrams, capture a sense of joy and illustrate the rules of play, too. A kid alone can try Seven Up, for example, as long as there's a ball and a wall. Do Shoebox Bowling; enjoy some Sardines (a kind of reverse hide-and-seek where "It" hides and the group searches); and have fun with that old favorite, Kick the Can. Check out how limber everyone is with Limbo, a Jamaican dance-game. Spin around and leap over a twirling rope in Whirligig. The good times will keep on going!

Booklist Review

-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 Copyright 2003 Booklist
